Well the jugs are finally off. Tried the breaker bar and nothing happened. Thanks to Mike001's idea of kicking them off. The driver's side was easy...just 4 or 5 kicks and it submitted. The passenger side was a little more time consuming...kicked and kicked and all I got was it bent in past the tire, then I had to resort to osbornl1's "big hammer". Beat it from underneath til I got the jug turned 1/4 and then just tugged til it finally came off.

The only problem now is that the metal clips that are holding the bolts on are truly stuck. Guess I'll just have to cut them off now with a dremel. So much for an easy removal of the jugs.

Thanks for all the ideas...seems like I needed more than one.
