push pin removal on skid plate

What's the easiest way to remove those plastic push pins that hold front skid plate to bumper,I want to replace old bumper with a newer one,do you just have to destroy pins to get out or is there a trick to removing them

Use the tip of a knife or very small screwdriver to apply pressure under the core (middle) of the fastener. Turn counter clockwise and remove core. Remove outer portion of fastener and you're done. Takes a bit of finesse. The alternative is to break them. Most make removal way to difficult.

Edit-it's been a while since I removed the air dam. Do the fasteners have a philips head on the core or is it flat? If it's flat you have to pop out the core of the fastener with a small screwdriver.

With out pushing too hard with a screwdriver remove the philips head core while prying it upward.

Most people loose that first time on a off road adventure that is more than a dirt road, followed by the SS shock. They do rip off by hand as well as do the fenders for the most part.

Once you pull that lower air deflector the hood will flutter more.

Just turn the Phillips head screw out and pop the pin. I've put my lightbar on my last 2 JK's. Trashed the first set of pins, bought new ones for the 2nd JK and got them out and back in with no problem. They are cheap. If you DO trash them, just drill them out, like a rivit.
