The three "bumper shocks" that connect the bumper to the frame/body each have 2 bolts that connect each shock assembly. I think these bolt heads are either 13mm or 14mm. Unbolt all 6 of those and you can then remove the bumper assembly. After that, you can work on removing the rubber strip by unbolted the fasterners that hold the rubber strip to the bumper. They're likely very rusty and deteriorated. I've actually done it with the bumper on the car, but it's much easier to remove the bumper first. Look at the attached diagram for a better idea on how it's put together.
