Oh wait a min, when you were talking about the extra 2 in the fender lining, you must be talking about the ones you turn a 1/4 turn.

Sounds like you got everything. It just takes force to pull it by starting in the corner.
Done! Very happy now! Also confirmed:
You can either take off the three quarter-turn retainers which are behind the four plastic retainers as done in the video, or take off the four plastic retainers on the bottom as done in the pdf. The four plastic retainers just connect the front bumper with a lower part (don't know what it's called but I circled it in red in my picture).

The most scary part indeed is pulling off the bumper. I was thinking I was going to break it too. But after receiving a quote from dealer for $180 to remove the bumper, I made my mind to do it myself.

Thanks to WATacoRider! Without you confirming I was doing the right way, I wouldn't be able to make my mind to pull the bumper off!

definitely makes it look better. I hate the three slatted grille. Good work!

Re: Some questions about how to remove the bumper on my 2014 JGC

anyone have the part # for the rivets? My father in law has the rivet tool, but he didnt have the correct rivets for the Jeep. I searched, but cant find the part # anywhere. The only thing I found was this - http://www.quadratec.com/products/73031_7003.htm

Don't buy Chrysler rivets - just get this $16.00 kit from Harbor Freight; comes with the rivet tool and enough rivets to remove and replace the bumper 3 times. (I know because I've done that.) Hand Riveter with 40 Industrial Strength Poly Rivets

On the right side in that link are different rivet sizes - which one would I need?

(I already have the tool)

I don't know the exact size you'll need. Again, just buy that kit - which is probably cheaper than one rivet from Chrysler. Just use the largest rivet out of the kit that will fit through the hole.
