Default Removing rear corner bumper piece

Is there a trick or procedure I need to look for so I can take this piece off? The box that's holding my vapor canister decided to finally rust out and break, so my canister isn't really held in. I'm going to try to fix it tomorrow, so any help would be appreciated.

10 mm socket with really long extension and ujoint to remove the three nuts holding it on and you should be good... if memory serves correctly that is

Okay, so should it just slide back and off after the nuts are taken off?

I do believe this is correct.

I looked at getting two new ones from a Bravada while at the salvage yard. (Mine have trim on them, and when the trim is removed, leaves a big hole or two in it.)

I got it fixed today. There's 4 nuts you have to take off from the inside, the bolt holding my bumper brace and there's 3 on the edge of the wheel opening, which one was hidden under my mud flap (which is useless with the amount of dirt and crap built up in the back).

Here's a picture I found to help too.
