    1 done. Cut stock center cap to fit. Works good. Now just need 17" rubber to complete the deal. :D

    I don't want to start a debate...but why would you need a jack stand for changing a wheel? It is probably the safest thing to do, if you can get one in place, but isn't that a little overkill. Yes, keep your legs out from under the vehicle...which shouldn't be hard to do if JUST changing a tire. No doubt you should have a JS if under the vehicle...
    Just curious is all...

    Did the same thing on my chevy. :D
    How much 'customizing' did you need to do to your center caps? Looks good.

    How hard is it to get the center caps to stay on?

    It's not.
    Just use the stock lug nuts with the threads on them.

    The Dodge centers are different than those GM ones. Mine are snap-tite not thread on. I had to cut the plastic skirt about 3/4" then the metal retainer. about 1/16"-1/8" so it would fully seat inside the hummer rim.
