Question Anybody taken off the slash guard

(the upper one) between the bumper and grill?

I have the clips out and it moves around freely but there is not enough clearance between the grill and bumper to take it out to the front and not enough clearance to slide it out the side.........HELP PLEASE!

Oops! Meant to say splashguard. Can't edit a subject line.

Do you mean the plastic filler panel between the bumper and the grill?

Might have to remove the grille first which is really simple.

The filler panel just pops out after removing the plastic rivets holding it to the bumper. Very easy. It's a cheap part too in case you mess it up and destroy it during removal. I cut mine up installing MBRP light bar last year. It looks like hell but I just let it on the jeep. Gives it character.

OK, here's how you do it.

Turn the wheels as far right as they will go and cut the engine.

Shove the panel out toward the passenger side.

You have to bend it but it pops back in shape.

It's about a two band-aid job.

There I go talking to myself again.

The factory plastic rivets were my problem. I ended up having to drill them out and replace with normal push rivets.

I know you think it's silly, but I was wondering this too.
That panel is a PITA.

I'd like to replace the plastic hardware with a big bolt, tap those holes and make it a little more "long-term" serviceable.
