No need to remove bumper remove upper shroud, transmission lines then unbolt radiator

The diagram makes it look easy. My front bumper isnt allowing the removal of the radiator, a/c cooling unit and oil cooling unit to come out in one piece as shown above. I'm only replacing the radiator so I need to detach the other cooling units to replace the radiator. The reverse V support is in the way on the engine side and the bumper is in the way on the grill side. Frustrating.

Just remove the tie bar on the radiator support and 2 10mm bolts in L/R lower corners and lift up. But if you want to remove the bumper than go ahead. Its easy enough. I do that just so I don't have to lean over it.
