Front grill removal

My JK light bar should be delivered later today. And the weather is to be a little warmer, so I hope to get around to doing the bar installation over the weekend. All of the write up I have seen are not bringing up the photos. Anyone care to give me a heads up on how to remove the front grill or any secrets to any hidden screws or attachment points that may be easy to miss?

Thanks for the heads up.

When you open hood you will see the plastics pop outs (or whatever they are called). Not looking at the truck I don't really recall how many but I believe there was about 5 or 6. When those are out it should pull out. Small tabs under headlights will catch slightly but with a little play pop right out.

There's a Youtube video on how to do it as well.

Got the light bar. Had a chance to notch it out allowing it to slide under the grill and checked for fitment. Have paint drying on the bare metal cuts. Now I have to choose between round or rectangular lights. And then, do I want fog lights or driving lights.

I think that I will attach the light bar with the use of one screw/bolt on the rearward mounting hole and then with the use of industrail 3M automotive double sided tape after cleaning the bumper surface extreemly well of wax and or road grime.
