I can't believe ford continues to use those garbage lug nuts.

Got the same McGard lugs in black, love them. 150 ft lb torque seemed very tight but did it anyway.
Funny you say that. I thought 150 did not feel very tight. Guess I’m used to watching mechanics use impact wrenches. One nice thing is the OEM socket size is different so didn’t have to keep switching it.

McGard 64074 m14 x 1.5 bulge cone seat style. 6 packs needed. 150 ft lb torque, available from Amazon or Summit racing. The OEM Ford lug nuts are a two piece design that tend to swell.
these are OEM fit for factory 17" beadlock?

I can get over all of that but absolutely hate it when my truck honks at me when I get out and leave it running.
Simple fix with forscan. Mine no longer beeps. But there is a series of tones inside that go on. That and many other changes can be done, especially glare free headlights. Makes your headlights way better. See the gen3 forscan thread.

Yeah I know about forscan. Hate to have to hassle with that when Ford could just add a toggle with a software update. My Yukon has this.
