Rugged ridge bracket installation
I just purchased the same RR hi lift bracket and am having a hard time figuring the installation out. At what point do you attach the plastic hinge covers? I am installing on factory tailgate. Directions are pretty bad. Images are also too grainy to make out.

Thanks for the hint. It worked great for removing the covers on the body side of the hinge. To remove the tailgate covers, I gently lifted the cover end closest to the hinge and slid the cover to the left. It came right off.
Attached are some pictures of our Rugged Ridge Hi-Lift jack mount. The installation went pretty smooth except that the template for drilling the holes in the plastic hinge covers was definitely not right. I think that they photo-copied the instructions and maybe shrunk the template. Be careful with the mount's plastic knobs -- I twisted one too tight and it broke. I think that I am going to go with regular bolts and carry a wrench.

Removal of plastic tailgate hinge cover
I was wondering if anyone knows the proper way to remove the tailgate plastic hinge covers on my new 2010 JK?
I am installing a hi lift jack mount from Rugged Ridge and the instructions are a little vague on how to remove the hinge covers. I don't want to break them and have to replace them.
Any advice is appreciated.
