LMFAO, but no lol

Take the plate off, there maybe two bolts underneath it. Otherwise or also, there will be 2 screws going from the bottom up into the under side of the bumper.

I don't believe so......

Mine has pretty much 2 bolts into the face of the bumper, then I've seen some plates that have that, and a few that have that and 2 more the go into the bottom of the bumper.

Matt...walk outside with a couple screwdrivers... when you take off the plate you'll feel silly for posting.

I just if you kept sniffin parts long enough...it would affect you. No more parts until you check into rehab.
