When you say they're difficult to get back on, do you mean they don't line up? Or they're just hard to slip on.
If they aren't lining up, you're not level or they're not the same length. You can hook up one side and have a passenger rock the Jeep to change the angle enough to get it hooked up.
I usually carry a hammer in my trail bag just for this reason. Make sure you wipe down the mounting surfaces before you reconnect.
