These are the right size. 14 mm x 1.5

Look at this on eBay:

Re: Is it me, or does something not look right. . .

They are the correct ones. It would be nice if they didn't stick out so far but I suspect it's due to the lock design. That band that runs around it will spin if you drive a socket on it. Makes it a little tougher to get off compared to a design like the Gorilla. With the Gorilla design a little grinding modification on an impact socket and you could hammer it over the lock and take it off. Neither will stop a determined and smart thief.

I just got mine installed and they look the same as yours. Only i have the 18 inch wheels. Not sure why they are so long but, they are definitely the correct ones according to Mopar.

Re: Is it me, or does something not look right. . .

Correct or not, they look horrible. Are they really necessary? I think they'd steal the whole Jeep before your wheels. Even with locks, they can still get them off if they really want to.

Re: Is it me, or does something not look right. . .

The eBay seller won't take them back, here is what he said:

"Those are the correct wheel locks, and they are all like that due to the large size to accept the wheel lock tool. Thank you"

I don't know getting a return out of this guy is really worth making a fuss over. They do look stupid - yeah, but now atleast I have two different locks on my wheels, lol. Orrrr, I could just sell them for like $25.

Really depends on the area you live, some areas have rampant wheel thefts some areas have none at all. These will deter the casual opportunist theff just to move on to the next one, which is all im trying to do, they wont stop the professional types. If they really want the wheels they will get them.

Re: Is it me, or does something not look right. . .

mine look the same on my Altitude (20" wheel like yours but painted black). Dealer parts dept looked up my VIN and those are the ones that came up on their search.

Here is what the correct locks look like when mounted on an Overland wheel.
