Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
Rear bumper needs to be removed how do "I" do it??????
I have a 98 Jeep Cherokee and installed a tow hitch this past week. In order to install the necessary support plates with mounted nuts I had to remove the bumper.
First I unscrewed the two screws located at the bottom of each of the plastic rear fenders. The panels (fenders) are then freed by tapping them upward as they are secuted with slots mounted to the body.
WIth the fenders removed, you can now reach to the two mounting bolts which secure the bumber to the frame. They are about 6 to 10 inches from the side of the bumber towards the center. Remove both of these bolts, then release the two bottom bolts and the bumber is free. Be careful not to break the plastic splash guard which runs along the top of the bumber and fastends to the body below the hatch.
Besure to spray the bolts with a good penetrating oil to help free them up before you strip the heads.
Good Luck, hope my experience helps you!
