    so the other night i was coming home from the hill climbs and hit a tree, it just came out of nowhere, but anyway i need to know how hard its going to be to get the bumper off as twisted as it is before i try and fix anything. i tryed posting pictures it wont let me or i'm not doing it right. the bumpers pushed way back into the frame along with the tow hook and its to cold out to look it over so i'm just wondering if anyone has an idea on how hard its going to be?

    the front bumper to frame theres only six bolts holind it. on.the brakets to bumper have 2 bolts on each side.if your frame is bent there might be a lil harder to get.i would undo all the bolts on the frame and try to pull it off.

    i wasnt born in texas,but i got here as fast as i could.

    You have to have 5 posts before you can post pics.

    As long as you can get to the bolts it shouldn't be all that bad to get off.

    Re: smashed my truck how hard will this be to fix?

    yah, tow hook saved the truck otherwise i don't think it'd be driving. frames bent pretty good we couldn't get it straightened out so there won't ever be a plow or body lift on it which is disappointing but oh well i guess it turned out pretty good no one got hurt, my truck still drives and looks better than it did before the accident now
