6 bolts that connect to the frame, 3 on each side. Once you get under there, you'll see them right there. Very simple.

Hey Eric, what is that thing anyway. I lost mine so I just plugged the vacuum line. When I got my new bumper I didn't have it secured enough and on the trail it must have popped off. whoops.

That is interesting because I relocated mine into the engine compartment and my air conditioner doesnt get cold. I never got it checked to see why. I am wondering if there is a correlation.

6 bolts if you do not have tow hooks from the factory. The factory bumper brackets were welded to the towhook bracket so there were a couple more bolts to pull. Also, soak yer shizz down in PB Blaster before you start torquing on them. Those 13 ytear old bolts will snap off easily if they're rust frozen.

I think that is just a coincidence that this happened at the same time you moved it. You probably need to recharge you ac. I thought my mom's car had a bad compressor when it never got cold, but it turned out in needed to be charged. My friend did it for free, and its a pretty easy task if you don't know what your doing.

And you can even get an A/C conversion kit for around $30 at Walmart or almost any auto store. It's really easy and works as good as R-12.

thats why i cant get mine off!

i cant remove the tow hook brackets off either, i dont have an allen big enough, and then my steering pump and alternator make it to where i cant fit my socket in there.

Holy necro post!

Allen wrench?

its probably a torx bolt. I think. Ive never seen the factory setup, but it should just be 3 bolts, that you pull from the bottom. Follow the tow hook back. Should tie into the same holes as the sway bar.
