another trailhawk question

Damn, should have stayed with Fords
I need to know what size socket is needed to remove my lug nuts.
World Jeep states 17mm, MY 17mm does not work, to loose and rounds the edge of the lug if i try to remove it
any suggestions, thanks
PS: lug wrench that came with vehicle works, would rather have !/2 inch drive with my breaker bar

That's so when they rust and swell-up you can still fit a 17mm socket on them.

ditch your 12 point 17mm, and use a 6 point. 12 will round them every time, they are capped lugs, just like Ford, GM, and Dodge all use.

do yourself a favor and buy a set of gorilla lugs

Just remove the chrome caps and use a standard size socket. I agree with you about Fords, they at least don't run around with swollen nuts. Trouble is they don't make the 70's bronco's anymore so your stuck with jeep if you wish a real off road vehicle.
