I have replaced several U-bolts over the years and have never seen a factory replacment nut used with Nylock. The factory nuts are usually longer and require a high torque. Youroo!!

I got what the local camper repair place uses. their u bolt kits use the same fine thread nuts too. all the u bolts in mine are nylon lockers. since my axles are flipped, the weight is on the axle and the u bolts keep everything in place. I wouldn't think high strength doubly thick nuts would be needed.
