Holy cow. That's stupid.

Is there a stock replacement that isn't splined?

I've also been looking for some black lugs. I spent a lot of time and $ getting rid of the chrome on my last truck, and that's one of the small things I respect about the Raptor: the lack of chrome. Especially on my tux-black truck, with the SE wheels, I can't believe they put chrome lug nuts on them! The only chrome on the truck (other than that horrible blue oval on the tailgate which was the first thing replaced).
I'd like to know if DynoDynge ever found out about the compatibility of the gorilla product. Found them here:

http://www.sfxperformance.com/parts/GOR76108BC-24.htm

May just need to order them and compare the conical angles to the stockers.

Anybody else have any other leads??


EDIT: I went ahead and ordered the gorillas from the above link. I'll post my findings when I get them, since it seems like everyone is dying to know about this important lug nut issue/extreme performance upgrade

I ordered this set in December, they are black chrome, and all the same length. Other than being expensive, they work awesome!

So I got the gorilla lugs and am very satisfied with them. Having worked in the wheel/tire biz for too many years, I feel 100% confident that these are a direct replacement for the OE lugs, with what looks like the same connection angle (as expected - it's not really rocket science...)
Sorry, no picks on the truck, but I'm happy to have that small bit of chrome gone from my life.
Plus - it may just be me, and I'd have to confirm with a dyno, but I'd swear I'm getting at least another 10 horsepower with this mod! And certainly much improved aerodynamics (I'd have to hit the wind tunnel to confirm, but why bother?)

Do you have any pictures of them on the truck?

finally got off my butt and snapped a crappy pic of the lugs installed:



They don't stick out any farther than the stock lugs, and might be just a bit shorter.

Can you take a pic straight-on? Is there silver visible aroung the lug nuts since they don't have the big bulge like the OEMs?
