    Really no reason to ever have to remove the cap once it is attached. I seriously doubt a magnet would hold...and those caps aren't cheap. Mine are still holding even after a lot of off-roading. I'm very happy with the results of my modification.

    Did this mod on my truck today using JB Kwik. Worked awesome. Thanks for the suggestion Tbird, it's a great idea and looks really clean. Snapped a few quick pics.

    Please excuse the "ride height" post. That was my mistake.

    Very good idea. I bet I could fit this on my wheel spacer.
