The bumper is fairly easy to remove. After removing the grill and lights here is what I did-
1) Remove bolts/clips for fender liner- bottom 4 on each side. The bottom 3 attach the actual bumper, but removing the 4th allows you better access to the two bolts on each side that hold the bumper behind the lights (explained better in next step
2) Behind where the lights sit there are four bolts total - 2 on the passenger side, 2 on the driver side. I believe they are 10mm bolts, so the same socket used for the headlights and grill work here as well. Remove these two from each side.
3) Underneath the truck, where the valence meets the bumper there are 4 bolts that need to be removed, also 10 mm
4) All bolts are gone at this point, I found it easier to start with one corner of the bumper and pull lightly to release the clips, and once that corner is gone go to the other. Be careful when pulling the second side, as once the clips on each side are off it will pretty much fall forward on it's own.
I didn't look up directions so it took me a little longer figuring where everything was out... but to put it on took about 10 minutes, I imagine it would be about the same to take it off.
Also, I didn't use power tools, just hand tools. So those would help too.
