Sure, No problem ... I'll get some pics posted tomorow.
I learned today that the key to this whole puzzle is removing the bumper cover (the painted part) and you need to drill out the 16 plastic rivets holding it on. You can't really use one of those clip removal tools because the head of the rivet will just break off 99% of the time.
I also learned that without the fog lights there's 5 different pieces to this bumper. There's actually a cheap metal bumper behind the plastic cover.(You'll need that Kyle)
Now I need to know if I'll need a special rivet gun for those plastic rivets.

No offence Mykhael ... but you're thinking of the 2001-2005 front bumper style.
The 2006 + bumpers are totally different. There's a bunch of plastic clips that hold the lower valence on and it's a real b***** to pull off.
