Re: Alternative wheel locks.

Stupid question...does every model of 2014 Grand Cherokee use same size lug nuts? I don't see anybody's chart that says they have locks for 2014 Summit yet!

I like that they all look the same, I hate having an odd ball lug nut on there for a lock. And if you have to use a key to get one off, it's not a big deal to use it for all of them. I'll post back tomorrow whether or not they will fit.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

They fit fine and look soooo much better than the stock lug nuts and huge lock. I'll get some pics posted soon.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

Here's the pics of the new Gorilla lug nuts. I think they look 100x better than stock nuts with the huge lock.

Thanks for putting up the pictures. I agree they look much better than the goofy Mopar lock.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

Do those go to deep into the wheel? Just notices they have a 'bulge line' that looks more similar to the factory lug nuts.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

If you Google Gorilla vs McGuard locks, it seems that McGuard wins..even tho' they might not look as good. They say Gorilla are made in China and rust eventually and are easier to get off by hammering a socket over them. Of course if they want your wheels bad enough, nothing will stop a thief. Any comments on which work better?

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

I had gorilla locks on my past two cars. Never had any rust issues. Like you said, if they want it bad enough they'll get em.

Re: Alternative wheel locks.

Just thought I would throw out there what I found out after I tried a few different options on some of the wheel locks. Theses are going on a 2014 Summit. First tried the dealer recommended Mopar (Mcgard) 82212564, these are too long and stick out like a sore thumb above the original lug nuts. Then tried the Gorilla 71641N these ones did not have the bulge flange on them like the original lug nuts so they looked too small sitting in there next to the original lugs. And finally the Gorilla 96641C was what I settled on, it seemed to provide the closest look to the original lugs when installed in my opinion. This one does not have the ring that spins on the top of it like the Mopar so not technically quite as secure but also does not stick up so far like the Mopar to warrant it as much either. I am just looking to prevent the casual opportunist thieves, the professional will get them if they really want them. Pictures from left to right are the Original Lug, 96641C, 82212564 and 71641N. Hope this helps others avoid the buying trial and error I went through. I do still have the 71641N and 82212564 that I will sell to anyone who wants them for half the price I paid for them, they are opened but unused the 82212564 comes with two keys, PM me if interested.
