This may be a stupid question, but has anyone had any issues with their lug nuts not comming off veary easily. When I was doing my lift kit i stripped the outer caseing off one of the lugnuts of my front right tire, and I did it again when I blew the bead off the tire....and now I was about ot put the old tire back on and put the spare on my tire carrier and I cant get that lugnut off!! Any comments from the penut gallery would be helpful. Thanks!

Yeah I had issues with my lugnuts too. DC puts cheap ones on and they fall apart easily and can get stuck. After my second tire rotation (which I do myself) I went to a tire supplier and bought nice solid steel lugs and they work great (cost me about $30 tho). Use the stock ones as spares in the toolbox incase I (or someone else) need them on the trail.

i replaced all my stock lug nuts...

had the cover come off the lug nuts on my last 2 Jeeps.

had to use a basin wrench a plumber uses.....its a PITA!

use your socket extension and a cheater bar
(not recommending a cheater bar ) <--------- in case OSHA is reading this.

good luck
