I plan on changing bumpers this weekend. I got my new bumper sitting on the garage floor and just need a little heads up is all as to where the bolts are to remove the factory one. And any other info would be useful. Like should I remove the grill or anything else. Thanks.

search the blue room, there should be a thread on it, its pretty easy to do, it takes about ten minutes, good luck!

Ten minutes? It took hours to take out the last couple bolts on the metal crossbar.
yup if the tac welds break on the studs then it get's really fun. luckilly I had a welder buddy nearby. Best way to avoid this is have someone tack all the studs before you start since the factory welds are real weak.
But anyway, if all goes right it takes about 10 to 20 minutes. even without instructions it's pretty easy to figure out, the hardest part is probably prying the top of the bumper off the corner clips. only because it feels like mabey you forgot a bolt or something, you just gotta give it a firm yank.

Why in the world would you remove the gas tank to remove the front bumper?

I always disconnect my fuel tank for safety reasons plus all those long bolts threaten to invade the engine compartment at the worst times. Once I remove the fuel tank I stone it in a lead box to avoid x-ray contamination which can weaken the sidewalls and lowers the octane of the fuel inside.
