Was I the only male to be turned on by the lady using a rattle gun?

No you don't have to do this. All wheels come with those off the factory and the wheel itself has a recess for it.

I didn't watch, but I'm assuming its pulling the retaining clips on the rotor. If so, no you don't. I've put 50,000 miles with 2 different JKs using factory wheels and Spidertrax spacers, never pulled them and never had a problem. Never pulled them on my 06 LJ either, until I put the Alloy USA shafts in it, then I put them back on.

Yes you do. If the wheel you are putting on does not have the recess (as the one in the video) you will have some type of imbalance in the wheel causing a vibration and tire wear.

if your wheels are factory wheels no but if aftermarket and no recess then you are a fool not to and besides it is about as easy as buttering toast to do it. Most tire shops pull them when putting on custom rims.

When I installed my spacers, I pulled them. The only purpose they serve is to keep the rotor in place while the Jeep is going down the assembly line.

Funny thing though, on mine, there were 2 retainers each on both of the front wheels, only one on the right rear, and 3 on the left rear.

I think an assembly tech had a moment

Think he was referring to the black wheel in the video that was used to show a wheel w/o a recess.
