Removing the Faux chrome strip from the bumper

Has anyone done this on the 2012 yet? I was outside trying and it seemed that the screw was just spinning in place, is there a nut in the back of it?

Tons have done it. It's no different on a 12 than on a 07-11. Just pry up on the plastic screws as you turn them.

And if you're careful when you pull it out, you may actually be able to sell it. Aftermarket, Mopar and its resellers actually have the audacity to charge upwards of $170 for it. See here.
