Ok, so i just purchased the McCulloch Kit at the GB....

I've done TONS of research about the install and I've decided to go with the removing the bumper route. However, I don't own ramps or jackstands. Is there a way to remove the bumper without jacking the car up? Is it necessary or is it just more convenient? THanks in advance....

and here is the link on how to remove your bumper.

You don't need to jack up the car inorder to remove the bumper, at least on the sports model. It certainly helps a bit with the removal and install but it isn't required. I haven't bothered raising the car the last few times that I've taken it off.

I just did it yesterday without lifting the car to install lower fogs. The bumper removal was by far the easiest part of the install. No need to jack it up, just remove all the screws and it drops off.

Shouldn't be since the air dam is connected to the bumper. I'm guessing not, but not 100% on it as I don't have it.

So, when you are removing the bumper (or trying atleast) and you have those little plastic screws that kind of pop out, what do you do if they don&#39;t pop out? I can sit and turn it for hours and nothing happens (and yes, I am turning it the right way). I just decided to break one off cuz I was getting pissed it wasn&#39;t coming off but then like 3 or 4 more are like that so I didn&#39;t want to break them all off and I stopped. Any ideas?
