Does the 2012 jeep srt come with wheel locks or do you have to buy them? My dealer put them on mine but wasn't sure if they charged me for them. I didn't see it on the invoice.

This leads to my next question, how good are the factory wheel locks? Does anyone suggest getting a set of gorilla locks instead? I've read in another post that the gorilla lock part number is 61641 but didn't mention if it was for the srt rims.

Also had the dealer put the mopar wheel locks on mine, but no charge. Probably was gratis. I'd probably just save the money and use it for any insurance deductible should something happen.

My 08 had them on when I bought it, thought it was factory but found out it was dealer installed at no charge

As far as the wheels locks go if you are really concerned about wheel theft you might want to purchase some better ones. I think with a socket and a hammer you can have them off almost as fast as if you didnt have wheel locks. Also might want to get an alarm with a tilt sensor so if they jack it up the alarm goes off

Not standard on the WK2. I just picked up a set of mopar wheel locks for mine. They are made by McGard. about $50 at the dealer.

I've had both the Gorilla & McGard locks. I'd personally go with the Gorilla's for one reason, the McGard nubs are easier to shear off if/when using an impact gun. It's happened to me once already. Yes, I know, you shouldn't be using one to begin with. But when your car is in for servicing, you can't be there holding the techs hand.

Like Ron White says, "You can't fix stupid". :D
