Nope. I ordered 10 from lrseries.com a year or so ago and it wasn't cheap. Wonder how much it would be to get a batch machined.

The studs on spacers are often quite a bit longer than stock if that helps. I recall you looking for spacers.

That part i know… I bought a new set of spacers but the studs on the hub are not long enough to mount them.

I can check to see if we have any of the old ones we pulled off if Kent's truck tomorrow but suspect they hit the trash pickup already. It's likely the lowest number you quoted.

Btw, check with justin at lucky eight for the longer ones - he provided a couple for Kent's truck after I damaged them.

Not a bad price at all - wonder what the length is on them.

IDK the length but the studs on my EZaccessories spacers were pretty long. I actually had to trim each stud about 3/16 - 1/4" so get my RRC solid nuts to thread all the way down.

Overall length is 56mm thread length 33mm he wasn't sure that the knurled end would work but when he found out what 60mm ones were selling for he said if these didnt work they would consider making some.

Ok I'm pleased to say the ezaccessories studs fit. Nice to have a domestic source without spending stupid money on a a set of bolts.

Sweet - good news indeed!

Now to see if we can source a thin plate spacer say 10-15mm range to work behind these.

Doesn't the wheel centre need to sit on the hub centre?
I'd thought of fitting a spacer myself as I've got the long studs, it crossed my mind that the centre from an old drum brake might do the trick. probably cheaper tin the long run to get something machined up though.

I believe LR wheels are lug centric. I have heard of using old drum brakes for spacers. I might ask my welder buddy if he can cut one for me.

Cool! Believe it or not, I still need to do this. In the meantime, I've probably put about 50K miles on the truck without a problem. But still just doesn't look right the way it is.
