I have the matching wrench inside in a locked storage strongbox behind the rear seat. They'd have to tear the Jeep apart to get to the strongbox and then they'd be faced with a locked strongbox.

Also, most thieves want to hit and run before they are spotted. If they are faced with Gorilla locking lugnuts they are not going to risk being spotted breaking a window and rummaging through the Jeep trying to find the matching lugnut wrench. They'll just go on to the next Jeep with regular lugnuts that are fast and easy to get off.

Thought I was buying a Jeep, but after trying this I found out that I don't really want to take it out into the desert... too worried about brush scratches and damage rock damage to tires and rims. Guess I will need a real jeep for off-road and leave the Cherokee as the wife's car and tow car...

Let me add mine to the list. Looks a lot like the guy at Camping World was right when he told me that, "When it comes to tow cars, there's Jeeps and everything else."

Last weekend up at Tin Cup Pass... love the trails in this area.



And we had the pleasure of wheeling with a totally original '47 Willys CJ-2A. Sweet...

Jeff I'm not 100% on this but we drove through Tin Cup on a trail between Crested Butte and near Gunnison, CO. The trail took us over The Cumberland Pass. Did it in our Tahoe.
