    Have you seen the slip on hub centric spacers I have in the rear? If you only need a small spacer, it’s the way to go IMO.

    Does anyone own/know of someone that does/or place that rents a compost spreader? Also called a top dresser? I have only found one place in all of NOVA that rents one and trying to get it is impossible. I would buy one, but they're ridiculous in price. Like $3400 or so.

    I did see those too, which is what I was thinking with the 1/2" spacers. I'm kind of a weenie to replace with longer studs, but I can do it. The 4runner studs have only 3/4" stick out from the hun through the rotor

    Edit: I could also buy new wb with longer studs too

    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    How big of an area are you doing? I'm not seeing any priced that high unless your looking for a professional truck mounted or tow behind.

    We had local guy aerate ours (good deal because he was doing a neighbors house) He does the top dressing, but he's up here. And his stuff was all rented from Sunbelt.

    Replacing studs is so incredibly easy, you could definitely handle it. Cost wise the 3/4" bora are cheaper but I like the fact you can get the minimum poke you need with the slip-on as well as fewer points of failure vs a bolt-on.

    I'd check here...

    https://www.jefferson-rentals.com/

    I've always found them to be a fair price and have a good selection of equipment.

    1/2 acre. I've been looking at the tow-behind versions. I did it by hand a couple of years ago. Never again. Took me three days to do and I think I permanently broke something.

    I'll look at that Jefferson joint. If I can find one to rent, I'll travel a little.

    In hindsight, they look easier than I was making it out to be in my head. I do like the minimum offset possible to keep scrub radius low

    There is no way that thing can spread anything beyond seed or fertilizer. I have the name brand version of that, and I don't think dirt would even fit through the slot or break it up if it was clumpy.

    Tractor Supply has manure spreaders. I would get one, but I can't find anyone that has successfully used it for compost or top soil. The one that TS sells got bead reviews, but I found its equivalent and it's $1700. Expensive risk. I can check Southern States, but I imagine it's about the same story.

    I checked Sunbelt again and no dice. United, etc.

    You can definitely handle it. You just smack the old one out with a hammer, slip the new one in, stack some washers over it, then a lugnut, and tighten it by hand. That pulls it into the hub. They also make tools you can use instead of a stack of washers.

    Yeah I was thinking about the rear for some reason and having to deal with the hybrid disk/drum thats back there. The fronts hopefully they slip behind the wb without having to take them off, but I've also done that and its not bad.

    I have a whole set of 24 extra oem lug nuts that came with the 5th gen trail wheels, so I can use one and some washers. And if I screw one up, there are 23 more to mess up lol

    That’s exactly what I did, used some old oem style lug nuts I don’t need anymore. Worked well.

    What ever method you choose, just be sure you use lots of grease. You can do a job on the threads otherwise. And if for some reason you can't feed the stud through the back of the hub grinding a flat into the seat works wonders.
