I just did mine today actually. There are four bolts, and four snap tabs on the top. Just give it a good pull after removing the bolts and it comes right off. Sand it, tack cloth it, adhesion promoter, 3 coats of flat black, done.
If you can still get to an Autozone, pick up some sand paper, and then i have used and will continue to use duplicolor clear adhesion promoter (2coats) and the 3-5 coats of krylon fusion (for plastics) in flat black. This is what i have used for all the pieces i have painted black. Post some pics when you get done.

i might be doing mine soon too

You can buy the black one that comes on the trail teams edition now. No painting at all!

Dr. Quest...............I have the Trail Teams Edition and the panel is silver if you have a hitch. Where did you see one that is black that covers an installed hitch? I am very interested as my dealer told me yesterday that it is not available or existent! More info please!

Spend 5 minutes masking it off and go to it. I did mine that way. Looks perfect
It takes less than 5 to remove it. AND you can sand around the edges better and get it a better job done if it is removed. For other jobs where the removal is more detailed and hard (mirrors, bumper wings) i would suggest either, removal or taping off. But this piece is SO easy to remove.
