Locking lug nuts?

My last 2 vehicles came with locking nuts from the dealer, kinda funny the most expensive truck I've bought didn't come with any. First time buying some, so could anybody recommend a good brand or style they like?

Thanks

I have the gorilla locks on mine. I do not know the part number, Desert Rat here in Mesa, AZ did all the work for me.
Each lug requires a key to remove, so there are a total of 32 lugs.

Just looked them up, looks like a good brand, no prices on their website that I could see. I'm thinking I'll do the 32 locking lugs too.

If I remember correctly I think I paid around $90 for the entire set. I also ordered an extra key for $10. I thought it was worth it to slow someone down if they really wanted my wheels.

No 90$ isn't bad at all for a little peace of mind. So one key is used on all your lugs?

How many locking nuts did you get with the Ford kit?

I don't think it says on there.

Yup, one key for all 32 lugs. It works pretty well.
