First welcome dood

did you look to see if there were any tabs on it? I know on my XJ there are tabs on the side of the center of the grille piece that slip under the headlight bezels. There may be something tied in under the bumper.

shop manual says it pays .2 hrs. with bumper cover removed, so yes, you will probably have to pull the cover off as well, pretty common nowdays.

I only had a couple tabs at the bottom of the grill. I took the whole thing off without touching the bumper.

Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ - Grille and fascia removal

according to this, no need to remove the whole thing

according to your link he has to "break off" the 2 lower studs that hold it to the cover, if he does this he will not be able to reattach it, they must be talking about replacing it, not reusing it as he wants to.
