I removed mine with no problem using a torque wrench and a T55 bit, as a matter of fact they come out a little too easily for my liking... but after I was done I torqued them back to 60lbs as per specs. My truck was very new at the time, only about 2500 miles, so I expected the bolts to be harder to remove, being closer to factory condition. Maybe with time rust and dirt make the bolts seize a bit? Still, it shouldn't be that hard, using the correct size bit and an appropriately sized wrench.
