are you speaking of the plastic and its difficulty to take from the bumper, or are you talking of the paint from the plastic? if you are talking about removing the paint, im not sure, never done it. the valance however is a little tricky. i dont remember enough to give you any hints, but it is tricky. be sure to give yourself plenty of daylight to start this project2000 silverado with a 5.3l v8, shorty headers, upgraded plugs, 10 mil wires, magnaflow high flow cats, flowmaster 80 series muffler(2 in 2 out) w/ 18 inch stainless silverline tips. i have a k&n CIA. its a 4x4 z71 offroad package.
