    A small handful of select mods.
    :gossip: all were built by ECGS. I am blaming their build tolerances.

    When I regeared my stuff, I took it to the diff shop down in the springs and he didn't have anything good to say by the arb install on my front diff that ecgs did. He was surprised it lasted the 3 years I was driving on it

    Change their acronym to "every coastie gear setup fails" ? ECGSF :transformer: seems like a trend here. Hate to bash but there is a quantifyable trend happening

    This is both disturbing and good to hear. I've been on the bubble if ordering an ARB setup from them.
    I always assumed from the number of guys on here ordering from them that they had a good reputation.

    Donner was a cannibal. You're looking for a donor.


    We are crapping all over Bob's build thread right?

    Whatever. It's not like he's updating us on build stuff.

    I suspect tax season has something to do with it. Blah.
