Jeep has been using the same capped lug nut design for years. It's actually a metric lug nut that has a cap that turns it into a 3/4" one. My '87 Wrangler had them. The caps would come off after being wailed on by an impact wrench. I got in the habit of having a metric socket that fit the cap-less nut in addition to my 3/4 inch that would fit the lug nut with the cap still on it. I went with solid ones after a while but as others pointed out, they tend to rust.

Gorilla brand lug nuts are outstanding. They even have black ones that blend in with my wheels.

I should have asked which wheel locks are the ones. I would have gone with Gorilla but ordered McGard ones a few days ago. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000COMX3Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Actually cost a couple bucks more than Gorilla and hope they hold up. Actually I have never used wheel locks before but don't want to loose my spare parked for the night in Moab or somewhere.

Death Valley is on the other side of the White Inyo Range and a dirt road access through a pass is located just above the Jeeps front window.
