I just finished my second 10+ hour day driving from Tucson (up to I-40 through Amarillo) and now in Little Rock. I fought the wind the entire day today. Even with all the mods we’ve done it was tiring. I think the steering wheel was about 20° from straight most of the day.

Just a note about the installation of the rear swaybar...I have just finished the job and if you are thinking about doing it yourself, be sure to watch the video and make sure you have the necessary tools for the job..The first essential for me was unpacking the nice big cardboard box carefully removing all the metal staples and placing it under the rig so I could squirm around and not tear up my hip bones!..On some of the existing nuts and bolts that have to be re used for the upper frame brackets and the lower shock mounts you can expect a bit of a battle because of the tightness and rusted threads..I was under my rig a week before delivery, squirting WD 40 to try to make things a little easier.I thought I was going to have to get help on one of the bolts , but finally it busted loose.My 1/2 impact only helped a little..the 3/4 drive ratchet with a cheater pipe was the go to tool but there is little room to swing it. The front bar will be delivered in a few days and I am glad of the break..A couple of HD Aspirin and good nights sleep and I will be raring to go again..

I am done with the sway bars..but have not had the time to take the rig out for a comparison test this time all I can say is that when you move around inside, the rig feels much stiffer..Glad this mod is behind me and look forward to a successful happy ending..
