I wish you could just spray the bumpers in place but most choose to remove the end caps all together prior to painting which made a huge improvement to the end product. It is a good idea to remove the flares because you may have some rust spots developing where the brackets mount to the body. I am all for cutting corners but I think this is one job worth spending the extra money and time to do it right the first time.

Less noticeable with a winch on front, but seems a little odd. The chrome strips come off easily with a blow dryer or a heat gun, they just peel off, then some goo gone to get the rest of the adhesive off. The running boards are in a tight spot, but using a ratcheting box wrench makes it pretty easy and saves alot of time.
Looking good Spence. The large roof tent must be great for accomodating all those kids, put up a pic with the trailer once that is all sorted.
