That is because there isn't one. NAPA might stock one.

Well, there won't be a lug wrench or jack but there should be a tool for removing the lug nuts for the wheel simulators. Call Thor if you don't have one. If you have OEM (Ford) Wheel Simulators or even aftermarket (Thor provided DICOR) simulators the tool should have been included with your owners packet when you took delivery. I have used a large socket on my simulators as well.

Not so for the 350/450 chassis.

On our Axis I can just pry them off with a flat head screw driver (ours is an E-350). Just have to be careful that you don't damage them.

Put them back on with a rubber mallet.

Yep big long screw driver. I also purchased a hub cap remover. Has a flat end with a curved handle (Makes it much easier to pop off) and a rubber mallet build in the other side to reinstall them.

Donít think the Freedom Elite wheel simulators are held on by false lug nuts. Ours werenít anyway. They are just plain old fashioned hub caps. They just pry off and then go back on with a rubber mallet. I couldnít put my tpms senders on even without the covers. Finally replaced my valve stems with proper dally valves and no more problems of any sort. Good luck.

They are hubcaps. I've had them off my 26B which is basically the same unit.
