How do I get the rear bumper cover off? I can't figure out how to get these plastic screw pin things out.

what part are you talking about?

plastic interior pins pull out,
remove interior pieces

then there's 8 or so nuts you access through the holse in the inside back of the truck.
that go across the top.
and a screw in the fenderwell.

Best I can recall.

You have to use one of those two pronged puller tools. Looks almost like a two pronged fork for pulling plastic clips. Just slide it under the clips and ease them out so they don't break. They're pretty easy to take off with that tool. There are also several bolts inside under the inside trunk liner that you need, I believe an 11mm socket for. Then the two screws on the outside of each of the fenders. Then it should just pull right off. Oh, and don't forget to remove the drain plug, should be on the passenger side on the edge of the bumper. Remove the plug only, not the hose. Good luck.

Yup. Prybar worked great for me... It was atually pretty easy to get them off. And none broke, so that was a bonus.
