    Have you climbed underneath and taken a look to see if you can find the bolts?

    MJ, for the front bumper here is a link to Zone's 1.5" body lift instructions http://zoneoffroad.com/Instructions/C9154.pdf
    They will walk you through how to take the front bumper off. Once the front end is off, there are a whole bunch of small bolts holding the bumper itself to the front end (this whole thing was a PITA!...and I had to do it twice, once to install the bl and the second to have the bumper powder coated).
    As for the rear corners, if you go under the truck you will see release tabs for the plastic step pieces on top. Once you get those off (another PITA!) you will notice the corners are actually on with rivets. I drilled the rivets out and bought stainless steel bolts and nuts and used those to reassemble once I got the corners back from powder coating. Hope this helps!

    Thanks this does help -- Glad that a simple powder coating job has turned into a PITA! Will make a big difference though...
