well the paint has faded and cracked on the cap that is on top of the front bumper.I am going to have it repainted. How hard is it to take off. Do I need to take the bumper off to get the painted cap off? How is it fastend, with glue ,3m tape or what?

I think its held on by the plastic tabs that are a PITA to reach to get them all out... Just get under the truck and look, I dont think the whole bumper needs to come off, but it maybe easier to take it off so you can reach the tabs...

i would just take the bumper off, shouldnt take more than a few minutes, all you need is a 15mm socket and a ratchet. and some tools to take the grille off. when the bumper is off the truck it is much easier to take the cap adn airdam off.
