How do you remove the bumperettes from the front bumper?

Mornin, How do you remove the front bumper pads from the front bumper on a 98 TJ? I'm going to attach a front receiver hitch and I need to remove these pads. Thanks....

Angle grinder and a hammer if the screws don't come out.

It's 2 bolts per bumperette. Take the whole bumper off and unbolt them from the back. Mine came right off.

This is what I did. Take the bumper off and you can easily get to all the bolts. If you can't get them off with tools, there is always an angle grinder.
