And they have been delivered. 1 set installed on my Rubicon and I have to wait until the wife gets home to put them on the Sahara.

What is the difference between the Gorilla and McGard?

IIRC with the MCGard you buy them in sets of four.

With Gorilla they come in sets that replace ALL the lug nuts. Everything matches, plus you have extras for the spare.

I got this one which is packaged for six lug trucks, so I have plenty to cover the spare and extras should I ever lose or break one.

QTec had them in sets of 5 for the Jeeps (Gorilla Locks).

I'll have to check them out. Would like some security for the spare along with the other 4.

I'm actually having the same problem ... plenty of 4-sets out there, but no 5 sets of BLACK ones ... all kinds of chrome sets though.

I bought a set of the 5 McGard, guess they are better than nothing but it seems you could just put a set of vice grips on them and remove them.
