    I'm having a tough time trying to figure out how to loosen the rear bumper. There are a few gaps I want to adjust to the rest of the body.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    You need to take out the rear interior panels and the spare tire and you will see where it bolts on. Then you need to remove the tailpanel and taillights where you will find push pins. Also, there are some push pins on the bottom.

    If I remember right there are five pish pins under the tail lights and filler panel as well as the ones on the under side. There are also two 10mm bolts just inside the wheel well opening behind the two phillips screws that also have to be removed. Once you get the interior quarter trim out of the way you will see the 10mm nuts on the inside of the quarter skin.

    Dont forget to unplug the bumper harness on the LH top of the cover before you try to take it off.
