the EC kit is the way to go. Do not skimp on this if you really want it to be reliable for a long time.

I'm by far a do it your self-er. But for the money I'd go with the EC kit. very easy to install and a quality piece.

A question I had about the ec kit is how wide is the axle is it wide enough to accommodate the new 40 in rule also can I buy just the billet spool?

CJ,

   My Gearset Upgrade 4 is a weld-free differential locker, and Peerless makes various-length axles for you to tailor your overall length.  Axle-length dimensions are in the Peerless 820 Transaxle & 017 Kit post in this section.

Since you are in Tennessee contact EC or ask George about a build clinic. Sometimes they cover things like this! It could be worth an ask!
