You can try to find a lock key but it's not always very easy to get a key to fit, that's why they are security/anti-theft locks. The easiest thing to do is hammer an old 1/2" drive socket onto the lock and then impact it off. This works 90% of the time so long as you are careful. If that doesn't work then it's going to be a little difficult. Then you will have to drill/cut the lock off or better yet, tack weld a 1/2" extension to the end of the lock and impact that off.

Dremel that mofo! But be careful and hold that thing TIGHT or else you will REALLY screw somthing up and you'l be very pissed.
I dont really recomend doing this but it'd work although destroying the lock. I'd do it.
Wait a sec, Didn't you say you took all the lugs off? Huh?
