Just look up behind the bumper and there's some bolts to be removed. It's pretty self-explanatory once you get under the truck. Just keep in mind the '95-'97 bumper has the license plate mounted to it and is different from the '98-'01 which does not have a plate mount if you're shopping replacements.

Thank you very much, It has been a great vehicle I only drive it about 4500 miles a year but all the bumpers in our town look just like mine rusting through or getting ready to. It will take about 21 days to get it up to Alaska so I will ahve time to craw under it and start taking it apart
