no idear- on wranglers, theres a retaining nut under the hinge that you remove, then on older ones that havent had the doors removed youll likely have to use a hydraulic jack or something similar to help push the pins up through the hinge. good luck with that, i just looked up some pictures of a laredo...

I had 2 97 GCs. Unless you have to take the doors off to replace the pins or bushings, I wouldn't bother removing them. They are a real pita, and they weigh a ton. There are some mods you can do to make the door hinges to make them removable(like wranglers). IMHO its really not worth it, although some people with disagree.

Edit: I don't know of any zj door hinges that have been modified to be removable. Only xj hinges.

I havent seen a ZJ hinge personally, but it shouldnt be that hard to mod.

Post up some pics of your hinges.

You could always unbolt them too.
