Both Dynatrac and EMS make kits. They range from about $1200.00 to $1850.00 depending on which one you buy. I dont have one yet but will soon I hope... Jeff

Did it improve your fuel mileage at all?

I have the DT kit and it wasn't bad at all to install. I will agree that it is a bad a** kit for sure.:thumbsup

Part of the difference in price is becouse the EMS kit requires more work. I think it was the bearings havnt been seated etc. I have heard claims of to .5 to 1.5 out of both kits.

The dynatrac offers two different types of hubs. On DTR someone was just posting about the difference in hubs and how far the dynatrack units stickout from the wheel unless you do some upgrade. Sorry I didnt read the whole post.

Just food for thought.

Dynatracs here +2 mpg gain from hand calcs. There's another company that machines a nice kit similar to DT for about $50 cheaper but I can never remember who they are whenever someone asks. DT makes everything in their kit except for seals and bearings. EMS is mostly off the shelf and as said will require some extar work to install. DT is pricey but the quality is A1 top shelf. Mpg gains vary. Most guys report anywhere from 1 to 3... Seems the usual... DRW always seem to be down at the +.5 to +1 mpg range. I bored holes in some hub caps for a guy who went the EMS route. Just talking on the phone about his install issues he said he wished he'd went the DT route. On the "how far do they stick out" deal Dynatracs stick out 2" past the face of a bored out hub cap, EMS stick out 2.5". Dynatracs also has Dynaloc's that replace the warn lockers. These are superior to warns and reduce the "stick-out factor" by one inch. An Upgrade I'm planning on I hate how they stick out. I've seen some before dynaloc's and after pics and moving them in another inch is worth it to me.. Almost looks like a stock ford with factory locking hubs...
