Napa can make you custom locks. I had em make two sets, one of three for my spare and a set of 4 for my wheels. Different locks.

I like the quality of the OEM locks over the aftermarket locks.

What do you mean why can that be? They have the same 1/2 - 20 lugs (and so do many other vehicles)

Wheel locks are not worth it. Seldom are just wheel stolen any more. The whole vehicle is much easier to take. The only one to consider is the spare which is why the stock Jeep has one on the spare.

Jeep used the same size lug nuts for a very long time! Actually still the same size being used today, but a different bolt pattern.

Gorilla locks #61681B5 have an outer sleeve that prevent a socket from being jammed over them or vice grips being used.

Gorilla locks #71481NB5 do not have the sleeve, but they use quality materials along with a fully milled socket to remove them. Those Doorman lock sets in parts stores use a bonded socket that eventually break leaving lock nut stuck on.
