I bought a 3/4 ton chevy scottsdale today and before I could bring it home I had to change out the front tire because it was dry rotted and flat (also, it had been towed/ dragged with the flat tire a couple miles). My buddy I bought it from neglected to tell me that they were locking lugs. And he swore up and down he didn't know where the lug key was .First things first, I cut the shredded tire off of the rim. The locking lug is round and I couldn't get anything on it to bust it loose (vise grips, pipe wrench, etc.), so I tried hitting it with a claw hammer a couple times to break the stud and lug off. All that did was make me mad and mess up the grooves for the lug key. I took a break and started looking through the truck myself after buddy (previous owner) "had looked all day", and low and behold there it was plain as day in the glove box.... a chrome lug key . By that point the lug was distorted and couldn't be bent back into shape for the key to fit. So I busted out the BFH and went to town on the mangled lug with a series of golf looking swings and it actually busted loose and I was able to turn it easily by hand with a pair of vise grips! so now the truck is ready to tow home tomorrow. Here are some pics taken at my buddy's house, I'll snap a few more when I get it home. He said I has frame damage, I'll take a pic and see what y'all think. I got the truck for $450 and the motors blown and I know a guy that buys them for $100 so really I got it for $350 (as soon as I pull the motor). Edit: I also smashed the locking hub on that side and dinged up the bolt heads on the axle.
