Im thinking about removing my stock front bumper because I like the look without it more. Is this going to be a bad idea? Or anything I need to worry about? And I will not be offroading while its off. If its a bad idea I wont do it, but Im wondering if its possible or if anyone else does it? Eventually I will be buying an aftermarket bumper. Thanks !

The ONLY problem you might have is it's illegal in some areas to run without a bumper cover particularly when dealing with large lift kits, at least here in the states.. I have no clue about B.C.'s laws tho. That and you can't mount the flimsy road lights into the plastic bumper cover, though why would ya want those on a Jeep anyways haha
Performance wise, rip that POS off and never look back!!

Dumb question, what's it take to remove the bumper. Do you have to remove the whole front grill? Mine is falling off, and I only glanced at the mounting points, but they don't look that easy to get to.
You put your right hand on one side then your left on the other side and you rip that f**ker off simple
If you wanna do it the pretty way then you gotta push the plastic pins off take you grill over off theres some there and sometimes theres some in the bottom of the bumper holding it under de radiator, take the plastic pins from the mud covers by the wheel and thats bout it it should fall off since the side plastic stoppers only slide into the cars side posts
It doesn't support anything special only your whole engine, so don't be scared to pull it off

I vote tie it to some thing and back up to rip it off!! And post a video. Maybe we can get a "death to the plastic" thread going with multiple videos hahah
I find stop signs and "Slow down we love our children" signs work best.
