a really BIG breaker bar...i think i used a 4' breaker bar, ok it was a 4' cheater on a short breaker bar.
i have one side bolted in and the other side welded in on my current bumper as the drill bit we were using got a bit too hot and dull.
Structural Steel I-beams work great as bumpers, no one who sees it wants to meet it up close and personal, but i really want to show someone what she can do.

Spray the bolts good with PB blaster or other good penetrating lubricant,, spray them again about 10 minutes later and let it sit for a while to work.
Go have dinner, or such....when your done...remove the bolts.
WD-40 is NOT a penetrating lube. Or a substitute for one.

Maybe some penetrating oil on the torx bolts before trying to remove. Besides that, it is a straight forward removal. Two bolts on the tob and bottom is all that holds it on. Good luck.
