Is there a way to remove the root on my phone so it will be back to stock. I haven't done anything on the phone besides install the systemless root. I used this guide:

If at all possible, I would like to retain the information on the phone (apps, contacts, pics, etc....). I can use adb and am completely comfortable with cmd/terminal.

Can I just install the stock bootloader.img with adb? or is there more to it? Any way to tell which version of 8.1 I have? Please excuse my ignorance on the actual root terminology.

@osm0sis wonderful unSU script is good for removing all traces of root. Afterwards you only need to flash your stock boot image (not bootloader, different things) through fastboot and you're back to normal.

You should also be able to use the SuperSU app's built-in complete unroot function.
