I bought a new front bumper cover about a year and a half ago after the original was cracked on a deer's head.sad.gif
The chrome was starting to peel on the original grille so I also bought a new black Iron Man grille and billet aluminum grille insert. I painted all of the plastic parts body color not long after I purchased them but I have not had time to install anything until now. 
I decided to order new plastic fasteners for those that looked like it could be hard to remove without destroying them. What a pain in the butt trying to decipher the parts diagrams! 

 

The first photo is of the new parts before installation. The next is after removal of the old parts. Then the old bumper and grille removed. And the new parts after installation.

Looks good! It's always fun doing the work yourself.

Thanks. Other than mounting tires on wheels nobody but me has worked on this vehicle since the warranty ran out. 138k miles and counting. I probably just jinxed myself. LOL

 

Edit: I lied. I don't have the equipment to do suspension alignments either. :)
