|MacCTD||Just curious, I see you have a Warn winch and an air compressor, did you consider the Warn winch/compressor combo?|

If it sticks, lube it!
But yeah...listen to Jimbo. Don't lube your wheel studs.
Loctite blue green or red, regular grease, lithium grease, anti-seize, oil, dry-lube, paraffin wax, teflon tape, Grade 8 vs stainless, with lock washers, with concave washers, with a tension spring, with nylock insert, titanium bolt in a stainless helicoil in an aluminum heat sink, etc etc etc. What a topic this could become!

If you broke new bolts, because the nuts seized ---then they were either corroded, or you got the wrong nuts--
You should never put oil on bolts--then the torque values are "KAPUTT" or the Nylocks, don't Nylock-
In some cases you might wanna use some "BLUE" LOCTITE--nothing else !!
I sure hope you don't have any trouble with your wheel studs and lug nuts !!

That's a nice pile of stuff! I've got winch envy
Here's a piece of advice nobody asked for
Give the hood latch mounting bolts a couple drops of 3-in-1 oil or a squirt of WD-40 so something before threading on the nylock nuts.
I installed mine last month and the nuts seized half way down the bolt. I broke the bolts in half trying to back the nuts off.
Quadratec came through with excellent service and sent me a whole new package. I then oiled the threads and everything went well.
It might have been a fluke, but I'd hate for you to go through the same thing.
