A little info on those locking lug nuts.....
All it takes is a deap 6point 1/2 drive sockect that is just slightly smaller than than the lug nut....you bang it on and then take it off....a large pair of vice grips also work.....or, they just steal your whole jeep.....
Pad locks require a bolt cutter....bolt cutters in the hands of someone who has already been to jail for burglary is now a good excuse to take them to jail again for possession of burglary tools....but sockets are not....
While I like the simplicity of the locking lug nut for the high lift....it's too easy to get off ....and it's too easy to loose the key....I've lost two of them....no more locking lug nuts for me.
Truth is, a good heavy duty pad lock is better...the real honkers can't be cut by most bolt cutters....I think the best way is to mount the high lift on the inside of your tire carrier and put the pad lock on the tire carrier....and who says you can't add a switch to the carrier and tie that to your car alarm.
