That's right, 50 for the doors. 50 is sort of a hard size to find in a set.

I Just took the infinity speaker grill off and it was a T-20, so I would say you would want something with at least that range in a set.

Yes, T50 is hard to find in a hardware store. I had to go to Autozone to get one. Sears/Craftsman and local Ace hardware didnt have a T50 at all, their sets only went to T40

I ordered an Allen wrench-style one from Grainger and I just keep it in my Jeep. I also use it to tighten my d-shackles so that somebody doesn't just wander up and swipe them. I stick it through the hole in the end of the threaded part and give it a good twist.

My socket-style Craftsman set goes up to T-60. I've also got a set of screwdriver-style Torx that is T-10 to T-40 (the screwdriver type comes in handy for tight places, like adjusting your headlights after a lift install.)

7 pc. Torx® Bit Socket Set- Craftsman Evolv-Tools-Auto & Mechanics Tools-Sockets

This set is by no means heavy duty but it has most of what you need in socket form and its super cheap.

I have a Craftsman set, T-15 to T-50. They were way more than those $9 set in that link. Your best bet is to grab a set since there are various areas on the Jeep where you need different sizes

I ordered this the other day, because I could not find an offest T50 at Lowes. Amazon.com: Trademark Tools 75-6109TX Hawk Trademark Tools 9-Piece Long TORX Key Set, 9-Pc.: Home Improvement

Cheap Chinese crap, but it will do the job.

Just bought a Husky Torx set at my local home depot for $10. Works great and goes up to a T55 bit.

I got mine at Menards they have a 10 piece set that goes from t10 to 60 that fits a driver; the first 5 are 1/4 drive and the other are 3/8th.

I also have a Craftsman screwdriver set that goes from 10-40.

I picked up this set thanks to your link. Great set and I couldn't believe how fast Sears delivered it. I ordered it late afternoon and next morning it was on my doorstep.

Remember to get a 3/8 ratchet if you don't already have one.

Almost a year later and I bumped on this thread but just got the sears set, nice cheap and more important NOT CHINESE MADE, which means if I break any I just go back to Sears and replace the piece for free.

I refuse to buy non-USA made tools. Plus the lifetime backing on Craftsman is a no-brainer. My dad and I have used Craftsman tools for decades with no complaints.

That being said, the EVOLV set seen here is only a 7-piece with T15, T20, T25, T30, T40, T45, T50, and is not the "tamper-proof" style. Does that matter?

Would I need ANY other sizes for my new 2014 JKUR? And also, do they come on a rail or in a pouch, or just free-floating?

I just picked up a 10 piece set of torx bits for a socket wrench at HD. T-9 thru T-60 I think. The small ones are for a 1/4" ratchet with the larger sizes fitting on a 3/8". Only cost around $15.
