A good quality T-55 soket and a Long pipe to use as a bracker bar.

Its a realy simple task. 4 bolts on the top 2 on the bottom and one under each fog light if you have factry fogs. I just replace my front bumper on monday.

plus, double check the fit of the new bumper before tightening
anything down, put in every bolt just half way to be sure it fits.
take before and after pics!
mods are good!

I replaced my Torx bolts with Grade 8 regular bolts. Towing my Jeep behind the RV (bumper mounted tow bar) seemed to keep loosening the Torx bolts. Also, with a longer one on the one that goes through the round part of the frame up front, you can add a washer/bolt for extra strength. Can't hurt with the winch,either and only cost a few bucks.............yeah, Grade 8 is probably overkill.....
