    [​IMG]Hello everyone,

    When I got my 60 it came with some 33's, the front driver tire was going flat but I wanted to trade the wheels with my stock fj62, but the wheel locks are shot!! The PO hamered them in and they don't come out. So I decided to remove the 4x4 locking unit and work my way from there to free the wheel or remove it with the disk? and do you get my idea?? well, the hub doesn't come out, I removed the hub cover the snap washer, washers and nuts for the free wheel hub but the CONES dont come out as well as the hub. I tried tapping it but it is hard since the tire/rim is on the way!!!
    I am new at this but I am willing to go the extra mile and learn from my mistakes, help please!!

    Try search... The cones can be removed by many methods, Brass drift being one.

    EV, first go out there tonight and spray all the cones with PB Blaster - Let it sit overnight (spray 'em twice tonight if you can)...

    Tomorrow, get a brass drift (sears or Harbor Freight LINKY ) and place the drift on the end of the stud holding the cone washer. Put a nut on there if you have one to protect the stud... Give it a good whack with a Big F*&^&ng hammer. The cones will pop out.

    I gotta go to work tomorrow at 8am, or I'd come by and show you...
