I found that putting a box end on a ring gear bolt and rolling it up against the housing then using a big pry bar under the lowest bolt and the housing pops them right out.
Was going to try that, but ring gear bolts were 15/16"? 13/16"? Didn't have not a box end wrench that fit. I had a socket, but that wouldn't wedge in there properly to drive the carrier out.

Very happy with the Maxxis Razr, for such an aggressive tread, they are fairly quiet on-road and did very well off road. Threw 14oz of Airsoft BBs in when I mounted them.

Yep, full width, I did not narrow them. Front Chevy SRW D60 is ~69.5" wide WMS-WMS and the 14BFF is ~67" WMS-WMS in rear.
