my truck got backed into not too long ago and instead of having a body shop do it im gonna save some money and replace it myself. i'll be replacing the lower valance, chrome bumper and the painted piece on top of it. i found these parts for pretty cheap at carpartswholesale.com. ive got some basic mechanical skills and tools but ive never replaced a bumper before, is it pretty basic? it looks like its just a few bolts on each bracket that mounts to the frame. do you guys think its a job i can handle?

It's simple. Like you said, the bolts/brackets at the end of the frame are the main ones holding it on. There are two more (1 at each end) near the fenders that hold the valance on that are kindof a PITA if you do the bumper and valance as one piece. You'll probably see what I mean.

Though, I just realized it might be slightly different for your truck, since you didn't say what year, but mine's a '96. But yeah, I wouldn't sweat it. Just look around and find all the hardware that holds it on.

Its simple. Maybe 6 bolts total. Look on the frame rails (obviously) and then look in the wheel well too. Take your time it isn't hard at all.
