Default Front bumper removal

I used the search feature here, but to no avail. I bought my truck with a banged up bumper and recently got a newer one in much better shape, I was wondering if anyone had a how to type of deal on how to remove the bumper? I looked under and I just couldn't figure it out.

4 bolts holding it to the frame. Easier than falling off a log

PB Blaster will be your best friend man. Aside from that, the hardest part is going to be turning the nuts.

How could you have looked under your truck and not figure it out!!! Lmao not to mention you have a replacement so im sure you can see the 4 studs on it.

remember to get a jack or two so you don't get a bumper in the nuts
