They ignored emails & phone calls when I had issues with their front housing kit. Melted the bushing when we welded it in. Nothing in the instructions about removing it, so was trying to get them to send me a new bushing. Currie customer service.

Some side notes. I had a set of yukon locking hubs. Had nothing but issues with them unlocking on me. So I sent them in for warranty. The denied it. Cause of some bullsh*t reason. Lucky for me ECGS is taking care of this and warrantying them and fighting yukon over this issue. I am not the only person with this same issue.

I can not say enough good things about ECGS and there customer service. You need anything axle related I would buy from them. There normally really competitive on there pricing. Even if the one time it does cost a few extra bucks its well worth buying from them. From taking care of these Yukon hubs to 2 day shipping me a new locker a couple days before I leave for Moab. Hit them up for anything you need!!

Another side note I am expanding my tool collection. I picked up a new to me box/pan brake. Its a Tennsmith HBU48-12. I am the second owner and the first was GM at the engine assembly plate. Thing looks like it was never used. And its USA made down in TN. Cant beat USA made. I didnt want a made in china brake.

That thing is sweet, makes doing clean sheetmetal work so much easier.
On another note, do you really feel you need bigger injectors? The engine seems to be getting plenty of fuel (lots of billowing black smoke)

You have no idea how much billowing black smoke there is until you follow him.

It only blows smoke when I spool the turbo and get on it. Its not blowing smoke all day unless I dog the engine. And I have an injector that is stuck open. So I need to have them rebuild. So I am thinking of have rebuilt with some new orifices for a 50hp increase. Just to get alittle more power. I do have 5400Lbs to drag up some of these hills. If I did do new injectors I would do some pump tuning and turn back the fuel screw. Meaning more power with the same amount of smoke or less.

I am no were close that that amount of smoke. Personally I like a little smoke but I don't care to be rolling call all day long.

What I was getting at is exhaust temp, do you run a pyrometer? If you keep hunting for power to tackle long hills, that where things go bad with a lot of fuel. Gets exhaust temp in the danger zone in a hurry, as well as oil temp

I do have a pyro, Its just not wired lol. been on the back burner to pull the dash and connect the wires.

Im just looking to try to get around 400ft/lbs at the wheels. That was my goal when I started this build. And to do it safely. I know a few guys that are going to help me achieve that.

Main thing is watching exhaust and oil temp under long pulls, keep that under control and the engine will live a long and happy life

Working on the new Tierod tonight.
I keep bending the long ES2233L end. So my solution is build a beefy a$$ end

I am going to be making the end tierod out of 1.75 x 0.5" tube. Will either be DOM or chromoly. Still deciding.

The material for the rod end will be 4130 chromoly tho.

The stud will slide into the tube and this will be welded to the tube. Then the other end will be drilled and taped for an ES2010L rod end.
