It is easy to remove ! The video is right on only advice I would give is when you install the mesh grill guard DO NOT over tighten the screws that hold the mesh to the grill because it destorts the bottom of the grill I am fussy about the way things look so I had to take the grill off a second time and then loosen the screws a little so it didn't destort the bottom of the grill now it looks like factory again !

You can remove grill with a winch but it is a tight squeeze. At least it was on my 2011 with a winch but very achievable.

Simply remove the top screws and gently pull the bottom out. The bottom is held in with clips not screws

put a towel over the winch so you don't scratch the paint of the grill.
