Easiest way to pop out center cap?

I want to pop out the center cap on my 2014 JGC Overland to paint it metallic black to go with my black lug nuts. What is the EASIEST way to do that without taking off the wheel. I looked to see where to "pop" it out from behind..no way. I used a plastic dash removal tool to try to pry it out..but it didn't budge.

Advice appreciated.

Haze

Re: Easiest way to pop out center cap?

That video is a good idea. When popping those center caps out from behind (wheel off vehicle), unless you have a rag real close to catch the cap, they have a knack for popping off and rolling away.
