2009 Unlimited Front Bumper Plastic Covers

Put a nice dent in the LH plastic front bumber cover.
Figure it will be easy to push out if I can get it off.
Taking the cover off should be simple but...
Looking inside I see a couple of maybe 5/8" fastners, but I'm not sure if they are attached to the cover.
Also it looks like I might have to take the fog light cover/cowel off.
Anyone ever taken on of these covers off?
Thanks.

You have to undo 12 bolts to get the plastic bumper off. First you have to undo the 4 bolts that hold the whole thing to the frame. There should be 2 bolts on either side of both frame rails. Now you can pull the whole bumper off of the jeep. Next there are 2 bolts on either sides of the bumper( right in front of where the tire would be) this will separate the plastic bumper from the metal under-bumper. Now you can start popping dents all you want. It's easy with a heat gun. You can drill 3/8 holes in the back and stick a 1/4" dowel in to put pressure on the bumper from the inside while you heat it. It's fairly simple to do

You also have to disconnect the fogs but those are just wiring harness clips
