Jeep girl for 13 years

Hey there! I have owned Jeeps over the last 13 years and, 2 years ago, I bought my dream Jeep - the Wrangler! And I love it!
I am excited every day that I get to drive such an amazing machine!
I'm at the time that I have to change out my rear brakes.
This is not my first go 'round with brakes, so I know how to change the pads, rotors, etc.

My issue I'm experiencing is that I can't get those rear rotors off! Has anyone else had the same issue and how did you get those things off?

I really appreciate your advice and stories.

Because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. Depending on the model, I suggest you check out one of these forum areas and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.

In the mean time, I just like to say . . .

Welcome to the Forum! If it's rotors, it's probably just some surface rust holding it on. If you're replacing them just coax it with a hammer or use a puller. Some rotors have a hole in the front that has been threaded. You can just screw in a bolt until it lets go. In any case, put one or two lug nuts on about half way so that it doesn't pop off when it lets go.
