    Update 9/10/15:


    I'm putting feelers out there to see who's looking to re-gear their rig.

    Full Assemblies are not a discountable item.

    Looks like lockers will have a discount.

    Note your model truck/Gears(with or without install kits)/Added front or rear lockers

    26. @CowboyTaco (8" clamshell bushing)
    27. @Gear Head ( LC 9.5" 5.29 r&p, master install kit, LC 9.5" solid spacer.)
    Because ECGS is cutting us really good prices on the gears there's a few things we can do to help.
    1. Read the Tech Write up coming some time soon. It'll help you figure out what you'll need.
    2. If have questions, ask via this thread, PM a knowledgable person, Email ECGS and last resort, calling ECGS. If we all call ECGS with the same question right when the GB starts, it's a waste of their time.
    3. Once the GB starts, make your order via their website, instead of calling in.

    Getting a pretty good show of interest I'm out on the lost coast for the next couple nights. But when I get back I'll compile a list for ECGS and see what we're looking at.

    Cheers!

    I got in on a ECGS last year, it went well, price was a nice savings. Choose your installer wisely, gear set up improperly will have you back in a couple months doing it all over!

    I have a 2012 4WD Access Cab Tacoma. 3.73 gears stock. When I talked to ECGS they recommended 4.56 gears instead of 4.10 ratio.

    I put ARB lockers in both axles, but just the rear would have been enough for my style driving. ARB lockers are amazing, in 4-LOW you can crawl up and over so much more than stock truck and do it slow so nothing breaks.

    ECGS will do group buys on parts but usually won't discount 3rd members or clamshells. If they do, I'm in for a clamshell.
