Snap ring tool for 4x4 hubs???

I've bought 3 sets of snap ring tools to use on the auto hub snap ring, but none have worked. Anyone else have this problem?

You're not the only one, I get asked this question often

snap-on SRPC9000A for 05+ hubs. The snap ring is still quite hard to remove but these pliers are large enough to work.

lol I remember this , you are not alone

I finally had some special long reach SR pliers brought in to my local Grainger

pity the fool on the side of the road trying to do this as an emergency repair
I was just fixing an ESOF seal so I could put it back together every time I discovered my new SR pliers didn't, work I think i bought 4 pair before I found the right ones

06 KR 4x4 BPD remote OEM Oil cooler /EGR cooler/water pump6 phase FICM , ARP studs,
Rize 4 link Toyo 37" camper modified special
For a truly terrible firearm experience I suggest Taurus
