I cut my grass kinda high - the deck is set to about 3.75" and I'm reading that 3.75" is too high to effectively set the anti scalp wheels. I went to my local JD dealership and the extension kit sells for about $70 a piece.

Has anyone tried just getting aftermarket anti scalp wheels that are a larger diameter instead of getting the extension kit?

The problem is I doubt you can use larger wheels because they will hit the deck. The purpose of the extension kit is to move them away from the deck. It looks like it wouldn't take much to fab your own kit except for those support rods which run to the decks edge.

It appears you only need one kit and GFP sells it for $64.20. GTT members get a discount and you should get free shipping.
