    Spent about 30 minutes today talking to & comparing info with a tech from Gorilla Auto. Comparing measurements from my stock rim & lug nut with theirs, we came to the conclusion that they will work on the stock raptor rims. I ordered a complete lock set (#76604NBC) & will be trying them out when they get here. More to follow.

    let us know how they work out! My stock ones are starting to rust already, truck hasn't even been driven in salt yet, wtf!

    Love to get a set of locking black chrome ones like those!

    Gorilla had previously told me that they did not have anything that would work on the 2012 rims, is this a new product? Hope they work!

    Subscribed. Looking forward to hearing how they work out. I had Gorilla lugs on my old truck and liked them quite a bit.

    From the pics they seem to be spline driven. Are they spline driven?

    I have Gorilla Guard locks for mine, and this is the second set I am on. The chrome plating had surface rust on the first ones after only a couple months. These new ones I have had for about a month or so. Already starting to see surface rust. I'm doubtful they will last a couple years. If they do, they will be ugly and rusted. I'm still looking for new options on the locking lug nuts...

    hosse, I read that the OEM stick out much further than the stock lug nuts. Do you know anything about this?
