Default 4th Gen Upper Bumper Cover

So when i bought my truck i wasn't aware ( being new to Dodge ) that the sxt was their base model and the upper bumper cover does not come painted to match, so i bought a primed one got it painted and now comes the install.

I have my projectors to put in so no biggie on taking everything off the front end, i've been told it is a horrible experience changing this one piece ( upper cover ). Does anyone know the easiest way or a walk through guide to help out?

Thanks!

I have the answer now, i went in last night and did it and it was super super easy.

Remove the headlights and grill off the truck. Remove the screw to the upper cover in each fender and then on the inside of the fender panel there is another screw you remove on each side and then its a matter of unclipping it from the bumper.

I'm doing a upper cover paint to match and i messed up and bought the wrong upper cover not knowing that the 2013 changed from 2009-2012 and the one i bought n painted doesn't fit. 300.00 dollar lesson haha so when i get the right one done and do the install i will take pictures n do a little write up.
