And the 3rd members are built, so the install really can be done in a weekend in your garage, saving quite a bit more.

They send you the 3rd member with a return label....if you return your third they won't charge you the "core charge"

So you don't have to even return your third if you want a trail spare, but expect a charge on the account

Well - The spare will only be good if you can limp off in 2 wheel drive - or if you don't do the regear.

Yes, that is a good point.

wow guys this is all great information, i may just have to find someone who works at ECGS and see what i can do, I do have a heavy foot but i really did feel the loss of power, i dont know if power is the right word, i could just tell i couldnt really do any throttle/brake modulation, it just didnt want to slowly move i really needed to press the gas to get that crawl going...

Due to my heavy lift and no front bumper yet. I have had to a diff drop bc my cv's and my axle seals are leaking toyota has replaced both front axles, and now they are springing for the diff drop 1 inch I will probably remove after bumper and winch installs. They finally got tired of my weekly trips to harass them, and decided to also fix my crank case oil leak, replace all pulleys on front of engine, and the whole front of my crank shaft assembly.
