Dude you have no idea how irritating it is doing wheels/tires all day dealing with locks and special lugs and customers who are like "whats that?"
I frankly dont see any legit reason to purposely use that style nut.
When a 19/21mm can be had damn near anywhere. Field serviceability is another.

Anyway sorry for the thread blast.

My guess is that you've never spent $1000s on a set of tires and wheels?

I understand wheel locks on expensive wheels and tires, but not on a garaged crawler. And I never understood tuner lugs (which is what we are talking about). However, if they were to come on a rig I bought, changing them out would be very low on my priority list.

On steel wheels it doesn't matter... But on aluminum wheels, sometimes the lug recess is deep and narrow such that you can't get a socket onto a lug nut. In that case you need tuner lugs. MAYBE you can extra deep lug nuts to work but not always.

I got them on the Taco for the Spyderlock wheels, and I had to buy them for Method wheels on the GX. Necessary evil I guess.

I changed my factory wheels out for Fuel wheels and every one was those where those type of lug nuts, pain in the ass but I know where the key is at least.
And you don't have to live in the hood for someone to try and steal your shit, pos thieves are every where.

Update

Lug nuts were an annoying pain in the ass, Just pissed me off because I couldn't weld the outside of my rear bump stops. Been fixing little BS here and there. Exhaust is done and it runs good. I haven't had time to take it to work to use the forklift to check for clearances. so I havent really wheeled it

But.....I decided to grab some beer and head up to my grandmothers house last Saturday to take care of some chores for her. I took pavement the whole way there (about 25 miles from my place) on the way back I wanted to take some dirt roads. (you know, because Yota on 40's) I hit a bump and the upper link on the axle side went up and took out the oil filter. Oil fucking everywhere. I was around the corner from a buddies house so I hauled ass there before I lost all the oil. Luckily the upper link just kissed the block and bent the filter seal in. Swapped in a new filter filled it up and drove home.

I think the rig was linked before the 5VZ swap was done, that's causing the issue.

Now I'm thinking of how salvage this 3 link before I say fuck it and redo everything. I know I'm going to swap in a remote oil filter, but since it kissed the block I need to move or lower the upper link mount. right now its perfect for 40's at 10" of link separation(IMO). what affects would it have if I lowered the mount to 6-8" of separation? Or If I shorten the link itself to rotate the upper link mount back 4" to clear the filter?

It'll be a bit before she sees a real trail.

Can you get away with a bent style upper link?

It's the link mount that is the issue, the bolt hit the motor and filter. I'll get a pic of it. I'm honestly kind of embarrassed I didn't notice it would hit.

My bad. I can read, really.

Definitely a drag, but no harm, no foul.

I learned that lesson the hard way.. I originally set mine up with a bent upper . It tacod on a hard bounce, it rolled the axle and snapped the fittings on my ram and broke both airshocks. Was a bad day

Finally got this front end dialed in, lowered the mount and cut the old stuff off, there was a link tower that had more metal plated to it, I was strong as fuck but retarded as hell. And we found this HP 60 wasn't "re-tubed" it was cut and but welded, so badly that it was leaking gear oil out of the axle tube. so we sleeved the axle with a 1ft piece of 1/4" dom and built the link mount on top of that. The shock mounts are too wide too. the shock moves around on the bolt, so I'll build some bigger misalignment spacers for them. Plan to hit a trail in the next week or 2.

Pics.








It will be cool one day, its getting closer.
