Front Bumper Removal

Finally got the rear diff replaced and now I want to mount my winch. For that I have to remove the front bumper. The only question: what size torx bit do I need?

By god I'm stupid, I forgot I changed out my factory bolts when I got my tow hooks...

Don't quote me but I think its either T45 or T55, I know its in a normal set you can get for about $25 at sears ( which I highly recommend for owning a Jeep )

You're talking about the engine cooling fan? The mechanical one or an electric one?

Size

Actually, I just removed mine and it was a 55, just to confirm.

wiggeled, patted and some more things, nothing. Just wondering if there is a known part with a designed short lifespan. I know, nobody would engineer something like this.
Thx Matt for the confirmation. I found this web site: (you have to scroll down a bit)

I'm getting ready to remove my YJ's front bumper (for painting). Good to know about the Torx size = 55. Are there any nuts on the back side, or do I just need to remove the (4) Torx?

just the 4 torx and if your lucky you will get all 4 out without stripping the head or getting the bolt stuck in the nut. i just recently took my bumper off and the bottom 2 torx bolts got stuck in the nut while unscrewing them. i had to cut the bolts and them cut the welded nuts on the inside of the frame off. reweld new nuts to the frame and then i went to ace hardware and got all grade 8 hex head bolts. the thread on the torx bolts will probably be worn down a lot due to age. you'll see what i mean lol.
