Lug Nut Wrench

My new 28A+ Cherokee Lite didn't come with a lug nut wrench. Is this normal?

Does anyone know what size lug nut is?

My Cherokee came with one.... it was so crappy I went to walmart and bought a 4 way..... Oh, then i learned the hard way that really the jack is just to stabilze and not to jack up. I was about an inch low and when using the 4 way I hear a huge pop.... jack not working now.... oops....

I use a 3' x 1/2" breaker bar. With the purchase of three sockets and a 3" extension you can use it for changing tires on the RV and TV, and for removing frozen in place anode rods from your water heater. With the further addition of a 6" piece of pipe it also makes a fine lever for stubborn snap-up brackets. Around the house it comes in handy for chores such as removing lawnmower blades. Also, I keep is stored beside my seat in the truck, on the theory that someday I might need to put my hands on a "pacifier" in a real big hurry. Truly a fine multipurpose tool!

I don't think a lug wrench is included in most units but I'm with dimurrrrrrrrrw - breaker bar all the way.

I have a breaker bar, 30" section of 1 1/2 pipe for cheating, various sockets and extentions and also a 4 bar lug wrench. I carry my "pacifier" in the console. It will "reach out and touch someone" a considerable distance farther than my 30" pipe.

Reminds me of when I worked in Sears hardware years ago, a guy came in with a 1/2 inch Craftsman ratchet with the shaft bent at about a 40 degree angle. He ws pretty sheepish when he asked if it was guaranteed. I kinda smiled as I picked it up and looked it over. As I gave him a replacement, I smiled again and said you might wanna go with a shorter pipe next time.

Yeah... I can see that happening while trying to over-torque a muffler on a crockpot.
