  • Locate the hardware or mounting bolts of your truck's rear bumper Apply a decent coating of maxi film or mystery oil and let it soak through the rust.

  • 2

    Turn the bolts counterclockwise with a socket wrench and ratchet, loosening each one until it is partially out of the mounting bolt seat.

  • 3

    Grasp the bumper with one hand, then continue to loosen the bolts until you can remove the entire bumper. As you pull the bumper off the truck, make sure it is clear of all wiring, and disconnect any wires if needed.

  • 4

    Install the mounting hardware in your new truck bumpers. This should be included with the bumpers. Line up the bumpers with the mounting holes.

  • 5

    Line up the bumpers with the mounting holes and hand-tighten the bolts until the bumper can be held in place. Then, using your socket wrench, tighten the bumpers until they are secure against the truck body.

  • unless you have the factory receiver, then you have to take out ALL the bolts, even the ones under the step pads. I think there are 10 of them. Or. . . you could remove the receiver before you pull the bumper.

    Otherwise two bolts on the left and two on the right against the frame. Unplug the wiring harness and pull out.
    Then pry off the cover

    A guy rear-ended my 1989 Chev Silverado and knocked the rear bumper down a little bit. Can the bumper be easily adjusted back to its original position?

    Well usually a factory installed bumper has no adjusting slots. Some aftermarket bumpers do so they can fit different models.
    I guess you could try it if the brackets are not bent.

    How to remove the front bumper cover on 2002 avalanche & how to remove the rear bumper cover

    Remove all eight small set screws (4) on each side in the fender wheel wells. Then remove the four secure bolts on undercarriage of bumper (4). Take a screw driver. (flathead) to the upper portions of both the left and right side of the bumper. Be careful....... These are extremely fragile and you may need to replace them before replacing the bumper. Then comes a bit unnerving part. Removal of the bumper........ (This scarred the **** out of me!!!!) just grab ahold of one of the corners, then gradually pull! That's it. The clips will come out gradually and evenly.
