Default Grille Guard on Express

Does anyone know how to get that plastic piece on the bumper (where the tow hooks would be) out? I want to install a grille guard and from what i can tell, that plastic piece is there to stay.

Im not sure if that plastic thing on yours is different then mine, but mine was just 5 push pins in there, take a flat head screw driver, and pop em out from the outside and your good to go.

Yea it's just a few push pin things holding that plastic piece in there

As for the brush guard I would assume you could get the lighter duty one that only mount on the bottom. Since I have the metal bumpers, mine has upper and lower mounts

Hey guys. New to the Dodge world myself. Bought a 12 Express a few months ago and absolutly love it. I was wondering the same thing myself. Got up under there and got the pins out and still couldnt get the damn thing off so I got out my dremmel rotary and went to work. The way I see it, screw it. its my truck and its only the plastic guard. Worst case scenario Ill just get another one if I ever take the new guard off. Ill try to post some pix later tonight

Would love to see some pics. I've been waiting to pull the trigger on get a brush/grill guard for my express. I've seen one brush guard I can't remember the name of it but its mounts to the tow hook mounts and there were two top mounts that mounts under the hood. I've never bought one for the simple fact nobody not even the manufacture could tell me it would work on my express.
