Ford sells chrome McGard brand wheel locks in Ford Accessory packaging for $45 a set. You can buy the same McGard wheel locks for under $20 a set. JEGS has them listed for $19.99. I paid $17.95 at Belle Tire.

1/2-20 thread for Rangers.

Thanks for the help guys

Scott where did you pick those Lugnuts at?

Interested in selling your set or are you using your set off the truck on the new sport trac?

I had a set of the Gorilla brand and they woked fine. The only problem I had is that the hex size for the key was different from the size of the lug nuts. In addition to the factory lug wrench, we had to keep a different tool in the car to remove the lockers. This may not apply to Gorilla locks on every vehicle but it's something to watch out for.

IMO locking lugnuts are a Waste of money and potentially dangerous as they are known to strip and then you are srewed. ANy theif that steals rims will have a Stripped lugnut remover that will remove lock nuts just as fast as a regular lugnut, thus proving it pointless. Plus the ones I had stripped after about three uses and thus I needed a Lock nut remover. This Could be dangerous if you get a flat in the wrong weather, on the highway, in a dangerous area, etc.


Here is a Lock nut remover for about 5 bucks online:
