Removing bumperettes

Having trouble accessing the nut on the back of this last bolt. Do I have to drop the skid plate and tank or is there a Jeep hack someone knows?

Thanks fam!

nope. Use a long wobble extension. It is a tight fit but it works.

Yes, that one is a pain. You have to blindly get a socket on it, and use a wobbly and extension as mentioned above.

I need to remove my bolts and replace them with stainless steel. Ran into this issue and put replacing on the back burner till later. Nice timing on this listing showing up, lol. Does the wobble extension reach in from between tank and spring? Might as well put it on my list. HF has a Pittsburgh set of wobble extensions that are only $15; (9 piece). About to do front/rear brake shoes so I'll add those to the list of additional tools I need.

Got the bumperettes off and the hitch on yesterday. The universal joint or "wobble" was the key. Thanks again!
