You might need a ratchet strap to reseat it, sometimes it helps to push the bead in

That BFH will do nicely .

I also use a spray ( bottle filled with real dish soapy water ) around the rim . It helps with both off and on procedures .

Thanks for the tips, Mates. I do have a giant 20,000lb limit ratchet strap that I "acquired" when I was in the army.

I have to do something this weekend, I can't handle it much longer, and I know it is probably wreaking havoc on my steering components/bushings/etc.

I think most of their stuff is overpriced for what it is, but I was sad to see them stop making those. They looked good and they were fairly decently priced. I'd probably pickup a pair if they brought them back.

x2. I hope they offer them again. I will certainly be picking up a pair if they do.

I got my Jeep back and once I put tires back on it I was able to start it needs 2 windows the back lift gate and the rear passenger wing a new steering column and new locks all around and they took all of my recovery gear high lift Jack wench (just a small one) they also took the remainder of my tools all of the ones that they didn't take when they broke in last month and they took my week old stereo deck good thing it was a cheap one lol but it is drivable so that's the plus :-)

I don't really care for them . Especially for a buck and a quarter .

I might use them if I was building an armored truck , but ... I guess that's exactly what a few of you guys are trying to do .

Some of us actually use our Jeeps offroad. It doesn't take much for a branch or rock to destroy the stock plastic housings, especially if they've sat out in the sun for the last 13-29 years. Plus you get LEDs with the tail light boxes and they're a lot brighter.

3" tube doesn't make this stuff look like much, but it is pretty impressive.

'00 XJ not quite there..
