    okay so i saw the link http://cwgrilles.com/pdf/4264.pdf and searched the site. no one has mentioned on how to remove the actual bumper itself.

    i'm currently in another state of where my car is and i'm trying to plan out my attack on getting my bentley looking style grille installed.


    i have the 2007 ford explorer iron man edition, so the biege bumper sticks out to where it would get damaged if i tried to remove the grille without removing the bottom bumper.

    let me know guys:salute::salute::salute:

    thanks but like i mentioned earlier, i have the ironman edition, which has a extra peice right in front of the grille. if i did not remove the front lower bumper (that beige peice) i would be just as stupid as my dealership in damaging the biege peice

    Is there not enough space between the beige plastic bumper part and the grille to put a putty knife in to unclip?

    Sorry, I also cannot remember which thread it was.
    I made a copy for later use and I am sure there weren't more pictures.
