The hex size of your Jeep Wrangler lug nuts is 3/4″, so you would need a 19mm hex socket to fit. Whether you use a lug wrench, torque wrench, impact socket, or regular socket, you’ll need the correct size to remove or tighten Jeep Wrangler lug nuts. Once the head of the lug nut is damaged it will be very difficult to remove it. Besides, when torquing the Jeep Wrangler lug nuts, a high-quality socket is capable to withstand certain forces.
Some locking-style Jeep Wrangler lug nuts would need a unique shape key. When the key with hex socket inserts sets the nut inside, the special key adapter fits around the irregular shapes of the nut. This allows you to install/remove the locking Jeep Wrangler lug nuts. The requirement of a unique tool reduces the risk of stripping the lug nut and preventing the wheel from theft. These locking Jeep Wrangler lug nuts add extra security to your nice wheels.
