I Curse the dealer who installed my side steps!!!!!

Spent most of the day uninstalling my nerf bars. I would like to slap the person who installed them with lock nuts back in 1998. The place where the lock nuts are there is very little room to fit a wrench without removing the tires and the plastic wheel well cover.

By the time I did the driver side I ripped out the wheel well cover and tossed my tire under the heep. The guys across the street watching me must have thought I was insane when I hurled the plastic wheel well cover across the yard in anger. I dident even take the time to cut each little plastic fastener with a box cutter like I did on the passenger side. All you heard was "Shwooosh" and the cover was in the other side of the yard.

6 hours later, iv got swollen hands, busted knuckles and a face covered with WD-40. (dont ask)



I just know who ever built my jeep said "I wana see them get this thing off now" as they installed the side steps.

I think I need to go cry and be alone for a while.
