Does anyone know where I can buy one in town? IPOR and Low Range sell them, but shipping ends up being more than the actual socket. Socket is $15, shipping is $16.

I'm doing brakes/rotors and a bearing repack next week and need to get one soon. :wrench:

Your local Sears store is a good place, if they have it in stock.

I checked Sears, HF and most parts stores in my area.

I got mine from Tool King (http://www.toolking.com/search/?q=54mm+socket) at W. 6th Avenue & Simms.

Was that for the 54mm or the SAE equivalent? I got my SAE equivalent from Sears...2 1/8" I think it is? As I recall back when I was looking I couldn't find an actually 54mm anywhere in town close to me.

Your welcome to borrow it...I also have one of those SOR versions that look like a chunk of metal pounded into the rough shape of a 54mm socket :hill:

The SAE is 2-1/8", which is a snug 54mm. This works fine but some claim they are not deep enough, never seemed true for me on my IFS truck, though.

Marlin sells a very nice socket, heavy wall and sized right (doesn't slip), which is what I mostly use. He's also out of stock and still not cheap ($25).

Looks like Tool King has both the OTC 6612 and 7612, although they say online only. Dunno.

I've got a couple (1/2" and 3/8" drive) - you are welcome to borrow one to keep your work on schedule. Just let me know.

I seem to recall I bought one of mine at Slee Off Road. I just checked their website and did not see them - but give them a call.

I got mine off the Cornwell Tool Truck. But I do believe Slee has/can get them even though not listed on site. I'm sure a tool truck or two stops at his place weekly;)

I think I got mine from Kurt at Cruiser Outfitters. I don't remember shipping being very much and it usually gets here quick from UT.

Nope, sorry dude. Haven't jumped in yet and have 3 rigs down. This Shyte weather is harsh for wrenching. :banghead: March and April this year have been brutal up here. Seems like I spend every other day shoveling out and the other day waiting for it to melt. :hill:


I know what you mean Stan. I looked around for one too. No where in town and everywhere that sells them online wants crazy shipping.

Didn't we used to do Pre-Cruise Moab wheel bearing packing parties?? Great place to borrow tools and get 'er done. :confused:

Thanks to all for the info. I make take someone up on the offer to borrow one for the day, but its really something I need to own anyway.

A lot of places have them online for $15, but shipping doubles that price. Not a huge deal, but I wish I could have just picked one up in town for that $15.

I bought mine years ago from Scott at Burt/Groove TOYOTA. I don't believe it was even a OEM SST. You might want to give them a call, Joe Borger 303 789 6570. And lately Carquest, on Havana between Yale and Dartmouth 303 752 2886, suprises me with their ability and willingness to find stuff. Good luck.

I have one that I can loan as well.

Over the last several years, there are a number of items I have purchased where shipping cost more than the item. I just bite my lip and pay it -- it's usually cheaper than the price of gasoline to hunt all over for a local item, and then I never have to think about it again.

I have heard some people say that is why they went for Amazon Prime, just to get the free shipping and then they don't feel so bad about buying smaller items that require shipping.

I tried that guy..... I was late. Romer lent me his, and it's past time that I buy one of my own. This is the second time I've borrowed his. :rolleyes:
