Bumper question
Hey guys I got a quick question for yall. Im wanting to paint my front bumper rear bumper and grill black but my garage has to much crap in it to fit my truck and there 2 inch's of snow on so I cant paint out side. I've looked at the rear bumper and grill and they look easy to remove but I cant figure out how the front comes off? can some one point me in the right direction? 96 ram 1500

There should be three bolts on either side of the frame. If you lift the hood and look between the rails that is the most easily accessible way.

There are two arms that go out from the outside of the bumper. The driver's side had the horn attached to it and should be removed first. Turn the front wheels either way to increase access space.

Taking the brackets off with the bumper is the easiest way to remove it without damaging anything.

The front bumper is easy, i removed it from the front four bolts off the bracket and just the two bolts on the frame and kept the side bracket attached. I just did a facelift to my bumpers. The rear one was a pain but he is correct, easier to remove it with the brackets.

I ordered new metal pieces since my originals were so rusty from previous owner dropping his boat off in salt water. But I kept all plastic and rattled canned them with the duplicolor bed armor, just like i did my grill.

if you want to know the paint process for the plastic just let me know
