    When I installed the E & G after market, it did not require that. There were some minor mods and it took me about 2.5 - 3 hours.

    But I do think that removing the bumper cover does require removing the grille.

    You don't have to remove the grill if ou remove the bumper cover. The grill and bumper cover come off together. Installing the grill is much easier with the bumper cover off though. And you will need to remove the bumper cover to install the HID kit also.
