The screws are held by thin sheet metal like these...



Try prying up on the screw with a thin bladed screwdriver as you unscrew it. Worst case use a cold chisel or grinder to cut the head off.

sawzall, heat, hammer, grinder, hulk smash, take your pick. I took my front ones off thinking I may want to put them back on. Now, Ten years later, I still haven't put them back on, and they are cheap enough to replace if you want your jeep back to factory spec, if you are not yet past the point of no return.

Hahahahah -"hulk smash" that's good! They are cheap so I wouldn't be scared to cut off the screw heads. Mine have been off forever.

The big ol' plastic containers at the end of your bumpers. They fade, break off, look silly. Lots of reasons people remove them.

I cut the heads off the screws off with a angle grinder. Then between a hammer and my steel toe boot, I basically kicked the milk jugs off haha. Wasn't hard at all. Milk jugs are the plastic end caps the stock bumpers came with.

I can lend you my wife, she can rip them off with no effort.

Don't destroy'em. I need a set, or at least the left front.
PM me when if you get them off if they are in good shape,

Just ask why I need them..........................

I held the bolt head with a Vise Grip and used a drill (UniBit to be exact) to drill them out. They do have the clips holding them in however there is a spring built into the clip which once rusted fails causing the bolt to spin it seems.
