How do you take them off just pull?
They can be pretty stubborn prying them out with a flat blade screwdriver and then cut them With a pair of side cuts. You might be able to grab them with side cuts and just yank them off.

Instead of just swapping one front tire it would be best to swap out both at the same time; just move them to the rear. Doing just one at a time could end up costing you twice the work especially if the one tire didn’t do the trick (assuming it is the tires). You’ll always be wondering about the other one then.

It’s a pain in the *** swapping tires on your own if you ask me but you could always go to a nearby Discount Tire shop and either get it done for free or at very little cost.

so I did have them on


they even started to make my lug bolts start to have shavings on them, luckily I didn't let this go much longer the lugnuts may have stripped off and I may have lost a tire.


my conclusion to these

Way to go and easy fix. Did you also remove them from the rear wheels too?

So got a bit of an update got my brawler 2 PSC rear bumper installed. Just ordered the backup lights for it and the lights for the third eye and license plate after re locating them. Love this bumper amazing design! you can tell a lot of thought went into designing this bumper. There are a couple tricky parts when it comes to installation. I will be doing a full review on this bumper and my front one soon.







Also she is getting new axle seals on thursday because I went in for an oil change Saturday and they said it felt a little loose. And this job is done 100% free thanks to my limited powertrain warranty! I love free stuff haha

Got a little muddy the other day, the pictures don't do it justice. A lot of the puddles were frozen over too. Still had a fun time. maybe after christmas I can afford to get some new toys for the jeep and be able to update this more.

It's been a while since I've updated. Here are some pics from a jeep ride for charity we did with Steve's jeep country.
It was for: Wheeling for the lost. We raised a bunch of money and had fun too.
