    If memory serves me correctly, I took out 7-9 bolts on my 82 Jimmy. Two at the lower front trim piece, one behind the headlight, three down the inside of the support and two on the lower portion of the support. :confused:

    It's been a few weeks though. Remember it was quite a few.

    There are 3 or 4 that hold the fender to the core support, then another 3 or so that hold the inner fender to the core support. NOTE that you FIRST have to remove the stainless trim on the front edge of the fender, where it attaches to the grille. Otherwise you're gonna ruin those pieces. To get to them loose you have to remove the headlight trim and get to the nuts on the backside of the trim. A 3/8's wrench will do the trick. :cool1:

    the whole front clip is off, and all the grill and lights are off so it should be easy enough not to wreck anything.

    Thanks Im checking it out this weekend.

    Cool. It will be easy to just take a fender then. There are 3 bolts holding it to the core support from behind the grille and 1 in front of the grille (up near the top headlight). There are 3 more that hold the leading edge of the inner fender to the core support. If the valence is still attached, there are 2 bolts that attach it to the fender. Unbolt those and be on your way. :D
