what is this piece and how do I remove it? rear bumper

removed my rear bumper, getting ready to put new one on, but this is sticking out and I need to know how to take it out



its only on the passenger side. the hole is empty on the drivers side... I need to remove it to put a different piece in there for the new bumper. How do I take it out?

Looks like the end of a nut-strip for a trailer hitch. As ConnerXJ said, hacksaw, recipsaw, grinder, etc. It is excess so there is no harm in cutting it off (just be careful not to damage the rear cross-member in the process).

There is a rivet (item #3) holding the nut strip in place. Grind or chisel off the rivet and the nut strip pulls out.

The rivet is aluminum and easy to break loose.

ok thanks guys. I noticed the "Gas tank skid" appears bolted to it as well. did all xj's come with the plate between the gas tank and the exhaust pipe?

If the Cherokee does not have a gas tank skid plate it has a gas tank heat shield.
