Wheel lock question
 
1 Attachment(s)
Picked up a Limted EcoDiesel last month and it's been great so far. Recently I noticed the wheel lock bolt is different than the other nuts shown in the attached. Is this normal? Thanks

That's different than the locks on my jeep. Mines a 14 overland, haven't seen those locks before . Probably normal though.

I don't know what to make of that. Nothing like anything I've ever seen. Can you take a closer picture?

Boy that sure is a different looking lock. I assume you've got the key and the paperwork too. The paperwork should should provide you with a way to order a replacement key if necessary, so who is the manufacturer of the lock set?

The locked lugnut always looks different from the others. And you've definitely got a lock there in your picture. I've just never seen one like it before.....

Had those on a previous GC; they were reportedly made by (for) McGard... one broke and had to be forcibly removed by the dealer. The ones pictured appear to be a bit more substantial.

Yeah it's a good idea to find the key for that lugnut now.
You don't want to get stuck on the side of a highway at night with a flat trying to figure out a way to get it off.

Boy, that's one ugly looking wheel lock. I'd rather have the standard lug nut in place of that thing.

That's what roadside assistance is for no? :lol:

I wouldn't count on a tow truck showing up with the right wheel lock key. They might but I wouldn't count on it.

Neither of my GC's came with wheel locks at all...
