You can use wheel locks, which are special lug nuts. They require a key to remove them. You only need one lock nut for each wheel. I use Gorilla brand on my jeep and truck. You can buy a 5 piece set for the jeep, or order an extra nut that will fit the same key for like $5. Another alternative is just to chain it on your spare tire carrier, but someone could still cut it, if they wanted your spare.
