Well, got the Wiha hex in the mail today; Amazon sent the wrong one and it was damaged to the point of unusable; called customer service and they are sending another.  This was just for a spare, anyway.

I can tell you don't own a jeep. Anyone with a jeep would never wish for Torx screws for anything in their life.

Or - Just either or

In a world of hex srews and bolts, you get a torx head that some idot replaced in a spot that you can not SEE, that sure can RUIN your whole day trying to fiqure that one out!
i.e., trying to remove a torx head with a hex wrench because you can not see the damn thing.

It is just that the torx heads on wranglers always manage to get stripped and you usually have to use a left hand drill bit with the drill in reverse to get them loose,  unless they are rusted bumper bolts, then you torch them out. What a mess. I hate torx bolts.

Permit me to state for the record that I also HATE torx-head screws/bolts and replace every damned one of the things I find on any piece of my gear or other "stuff."

Wooha on the Wiha. Combined with John's excellent alloy screws, the Hudy, and/or the Wiha the R9 screws are no longer an issue for me.
