You have to have a little mechanic ability to unbolt them and reinstall them.

^^^^that is a given, here is a step by step instruction on how to remove the bumper on a Dodge Dakota 98-99 (i'm sure it's the same for a few other years mainly generation 2 Dakota's), and a list of tools needed.

Tools needed:

18 mm Socket and a ratchet

WD-40/PB Blaster

#2 Phillips bit screwdriver / flat head (in order to remove bumper cover)

how to remove the bumper:

1.) pop your hood and open it all the way

2.) look down in front of your coolant overflow tank and just to the left of the radiator

3.) remove the four 18mm bolts from bumper

4.) pull bumper out

(if you need to remove the brakets that the bumper is bolted to then you need a T50 star bit and a 3/4 inch socket with a 6" extention)
