    Looks great. I want to get that dual kit too. Have you tried it out yet? What sort of difference do you notice?

    I have the Skyjacker stabilizers on my truck, with 42 and 38s and man they make a HUGE difference. Dont know about smaller tires though, never really had small tires. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Is that the factory sway bar? If so did you paint it or powerder coat it, or ???? How much of a difference does it make with that steering stabalizer on there?

    Yes makes a good bit of difference. No more rolling into a dip in the road. Feels more solid.

    Yes that is the factory sway bar. I went ahead a pinted it so it matched the axles. Added new energy suspension bushings to the sway bar also. Big difference on turning.

    Stabilizer made a good difference also. Feels solid and rain puddles and such does not pull the tires any longer.
