Help with my Jeep

I have a 92 jeep xj as my hunting rig , recently i cracked the stub axle ears . I ordered a new spicer stub axle from rock auto ,  I was able to take a mallet and hammer on the ABS tone ring with no probs . The new stub did not come with a cotter pin hole I tried drilling a new hole and only got about 1mm . it dulls my drill bits .  Is there a kind of bit i can buy to drill through chrome/moly?  Could i just torque down the hub nut and apply lock tite ?  I have only corded drill and vise in my garage .  Thx .

I believe some cars use nylon lock nuts in that spot

I saw some of these at the parts store . could not find any other info to put on my jeep.  Ended up using thread locker and torque down to specs .
