    Has anyone removed the D-rings that come preinstalled on the Tacoma? If so, how did you do it? Not sure if it's just mine, but it is stuck on there pretty good. Here is a pic of D-ring I'm referring to:

    torx bit, and a big ass pry bar on the end of your ratchet. or air tools, that's my #1 choice every time.

    Yea i just took mine out the other day. These things are tight as hell!! Can't imagine getting em' off with anything but an impact gun. That's what i had to use, tried the old breaker bar first but i was afraid i was gonna snap my torx bit.

    guess i'm out of luck, don't have any of those tools to get it off. it'll be cheaper to buy new D-rings than to buy tools. Thanks for the help!
