110 Brush Bar Removal

I am planing to remove the brush bar and steps from my 110. They are in decent shape I just like the basic look without them. Question - do I have to remove the grill to remove the push bar? are there captive nuts holding it on?

Also planning to sell so let me know if you want it

If i recall you need to take out the plastic grill to remove the push bar. I dont remember if they are captive nuts or not.

Can I assume all the bolts for the grill are easy to get to?

You will see rust spots behind it on the bumper where it mounts when you remove the brush bar. The bolts on top were captive on the remains of the NAS 110 I have.

I just changed the stock brush bar on my 90 yesterday. It was just a few bolts on the bumper and it came right off. Not sure if it's the same for the 110 but I didn't have to remove the grill at all.

I think you may not have the a/c fans that stick out over the bolts to remove the brush bar like the 110 does. My grill came off with 4 screws and the bolts are easy to get to.

Genuine 110 brush bars are not worth the freight to ship them. They are normally rusted pieces of junk and the case of my 110, the brush bar did extra damage to the front end when it was in an accident. Had it not been there it would have saved me an extra $1000 on repairs.

The one on my truck is in decent shape but I hate the look of it and I hate the factory steps.

I yanked the factory step off as well. It was cheesy. I now have real steel tree sliders on there and the new front winch bumper is bullet proof.

Genuine metal accessories are the pits. I hope the poly ones on the later models are better.

The grill definitely has to come off, but it is just a bolt on each side near the bottom and 4 screws across the top.
