Hi Lance,

Yes I do!! And I love it!

It did not upset the ride of my truck, but did improve its ability to hang on to turns. Now I drive my truck a little more "sporty" than some. I would recommend the sway bar if you feel the back end of your truck wanting to step out when you are cornering.

I have found that exiting freeways to be quite exhilarating. The truck is very sure footed for the way I drive. I like pressing it in corners.

I hope this helped, :D

Does anyone have pictures after the install? I'm 'considering' a beefier front bar and need to look into the fitment of the matching rear - I've heard it can have issues clearing the rear.

Heard great things about these on here and from others, go for it!

It looks like you're missing the 1/2" spacers that goes between the ends of the sway bar and the bushings of the end links. See photo 3 on page 3 of the installation instructions.
