fixed it, hopefully. since the nut size is so weird no one stocks them and no one can order just the nut or nut and bolt so i replaced the bolt with a half inch grade 8 bolt with 3/4 6 point hex head with matching washers and bolt. hoping this holds

No I have never had a LCA nut come loose at all. The torque on those is supposed to be like 100lbs or so. I dont remember on my TJ. I just did a complete axle swap in January and all of mine were still tight too. Maybe I shoud check them this week though??? Or not. Either way it will be ready for Sunday.
