So... I ordered a new prepainted bumper... Any tips, secrets or pitfalls we should be aware of when pulling/replacing this thing? Hidden screws? Jesus clips? Etc?

Thanks guys 😊

Nothing out of the norm, I rebuilt the entire front clip on an 09.
Bunch of tiny screws on the bottom valance, the ones across the top under the grill and IIRC 2 on each side where bumper meets the fender (may only be 1) Don't forget to unplug the fog lights

Wooo that’s some serious carnage...looks like he rolled under the truck. Those damn things are everywhere it seems....even getting more prevalent down here in Florida.

Don’t look like he has the guts to do that again.
My kid said there easy, takes about 1/3 of the “book hours” to swap.

He might have gone under the front right wheel some he hit the bumper on the front right corner, but I don't think he went all the way under. I wasn't there, he was on his way to work so 🤷
