Icon14 Gorilla Power Wrench

Bought this from Tirerack.com for $19.99
I chose to get the one that came with the deep sockets, for just the wrench I think it's $13. My wheels were just put on by a shop so I know they were gonna be super tight overtorqued, so it was time to test the gorilla power!



Extended Gorilla Mode!!!


What a breeze over a regular tire iron or 4 way lug remover.....


Wheels now correctly torqued to spec!(80 ft. lbs.)

Looks good, but a reg ratchet works fine

Re: Gorilla Power Wrench

You don't gotta bust balls man. Congrats on a new tool, I know I love everyone I get lol.

But yeah...it pisses me off that everyone just takes a gun to their lugs and doesn't think twice about it. I torque mine by hand and people tell me I'm wasting time. Whatev.

Sure it does....until a shop air guns your lugs and you have to use all your strength to get them off leaving a mark on your hands LOL. Consider this a cheap awesome breaker bar with a padded handle.

I love getting new tools! I just couldn't believe how easy it was to take off the lugs with this thing! Torquing your lugs is important unless you want to break your studs, warp rotors, etc.

Re: Gorilla Power Wrench

i just rotated my tires yesterday and used my uncles air gur to get the nuts off but yes i made sure to torque them to 80ft lbs. This thing does look pretty nice instead of a regular tire iron. I gota 4way i use when i have to go by hand but i might look into one of these.

Re: Gorilla Power Wrench

Rofl it's only $13. How much cheaper can a pipe be? I'd rather spend a bit more and get a quality product lol.

lol, havent we all been there.

anywho, It doesnt look all that different from the stock lug wrench imo. But if it works and gets the job done, even just a slight bit easier, it would be worth it to me. Don't think I'll run out and buy one buuuut eh.

sad when your kid looks at you when you get to the third tire and say "what the sh** I got better things to do" couldn't do anything but laugh and tell him I'd make him do all four again if he didn't stop complaining
