    Went around a curve on a forest road and this happened. Got out and found it just like this.
    KIMG0687.jpg

    Five of the six lug nuts were lying in a circle just a few feet behind the truck. One lug stud was broken and I assume its nut is still on it. I got lucky. Just put sliders on a few weeks ago and had a hi-lift with me. Was just a matter of jacking it up and slapping the wheel back on and hauling ass home. Was on my way to check trail cams but abandoned the mission after this happened. Didn't want to tempt fate anymore by pushing my luck.

    I didn't make a single stop on the way home! I was worried it was way worse before I got out. Heard a clunk and then it wouldn't move whether in drive or reverse. I thought the transmission had gone out. It was a rough patch of road and the truck stopped when the wheel fell off because I have an open differential. It felt like I got snagged on a rock or log. I panicked for a second when it wouldn't move. I still panicked a little when I saw it cause I figured I was gonna be walking.

    Weird thing was, all the lugs on the other rear wheel were loose too. Haven't had the wheels off since like Jan or Feb. Not sure if I shook the shit out of them (drove like 150 or 200 miles on unmaintained forest roads in the last two days) or someone sabotaged me. Odd situation all the way around.

    That is a trip. Hope it wasn't a sabotage. Be safe out there.

    Now that the storm blew through (nice that I didn't lose power), I can really try and get some stuff done. Today it will be steering wheel install and hopefully replace my window weatherstrips on my doors, figure out the length I need to make the harness for my power mirrors, sound deaden both doors, install the power mirrors (not plugged in yet), and then maybe test fit my Buschwackers.
    I'm not doing anything Saturday except working on my truck so don't ask ;)

    On a 2015? How often do you wheel? This scares me a little since I have a 2013.

    I'm about to go the pump out route myself.... I have not hit this with a torch yet, and another suggested hitting it with the torque gun TIGHTENING first then Loosening....

    But now i'm mostly just saving up to re-gear through ECGS and let them have the shell.....

    I like to refer to the seen in Tommy Boy where he talks about taking a crap in the box and guaranteeing it. :rofl::rofl:

    Seriously though, if it helps you sleep at night. Then by all means go for it. I personally believe a warranty is a racket based on fear and I am probably 30-40k ahead because I have never bought one. I do most everything myself and what I do not feel up for, I know a guy or two.

    Best of luck to you. I actually think I am going to go this route before I just use a fluid pump:

    Another user on here recommended this Irwin Screw Extrator Set to me and they arrived at my house yesterday. These would have came in handy on so many other projects... I wish I had ordered this set years ago.
