Try using locknuts. Those seem to be the hardest darn things to get off even if you weren't trying to steal it.

well got it all done. took about 3 hrs total with one trip to the parts store needed a torx 55 for the tow hook removal. had a 50 and 60 lol but no 55. it looks awsome (will post up later) sagged the front about .75-1'' but i will fix that next month with a lift and bigger tires. i kept the stock bumper moved the fog lights to the outer rear most hole on each side (where the end caps were held on) and flipped the orginial tow hooks around and reused them. im very happy with the look and hope i only ever have to use it on others never me

thanks all
