    What's so special you ask? It's a perfect fit (like a it won't fit on a messed up nut even if it's a little buggered) and angle to tighten the notorious 80 series knuckle stud nuts! And for those of you that dont know the 80s lower knuckle stud nuts back off with wheeling and then the studs sheer, you lose steering and the whole knuckle can peel away from the axle. Offroad this leads to a real crappy day and on the highway probably something close to death. This will live in my driver door from now on. Much easier to use this than get out my sockets, extension, and ratchet.

    Check your NUTS! I check my 80 each wheeling trip.

    Link for those that want one (all 80 drivers should get one

    How long is it? If it is not long enough to get enough torque you could cut just one end of and find a nice pipe the right size that slips over it. Giving whatever length you need to make the torque.
