Great thread-
Thanks to those who shared. Adding four way lug nut wrench to packed items for pickup of Egg. Just in case. And a piece of PVC pipe to stick on for mechanical advantage.

Also based on suggestions we will be practicing tire changes once we get it home.

Steel pipe is what you want if it is going to be used for a cheater bar.

Yes - thanks. Will work on finding a piece of suitable pipe.

You should be able to go to a place like Lowes or Home Depot and find a suitable piece of pipe. In the electrical or plumbing trade any piece of pipe less than 10 foot is called a nipple. A 2 or 3 foot nipple should be pretty easy to find. A 1.25" or 1.50" size diameter should be about right. You don't want something to big and clunky. You could probably take your 4 way lug wrench with you and find something that just slides over the end. Those nipples will have threads on them so you might ask one of the employees to cut the threads off and ream both ends. A box end wrench big enough to slide over the end of the 4 way will also work as a cheater but you have to be careful using that method.

An actual "breaker bar" can be purchased cheap. I have a torque wrench and a breaker bar that I got on sale at Canadian Tire ( or Harbor Freight ). They are good enough for occasional use.

Not good for a breaker bar, but it is perfect for a broken bar

The lugnuts was cranked on by someone that though it was a heavy equipment. I got to find out on side of road in B-ham AL. The roads though there blown one tire on way though the other on way home. Had funny looking Jeep after that.... A blown tire n wheel from Scamp on tire rack of Jeep.🤪
