Got swaybars on!!!I'm running extended wheelbase kit and aftermarket links ,primal sells them,jrc I think.... Anyway it will be very easy if everything is stock. I did what I like for my truck. Be careful with the shcs that bolt the 2 aluminum parts together over the swaybar, barely got any tourqe on them before Allen head rounded......I used ones from v4 bolt kit on second bar, no problems. I also replaced the setscrews with a 4mm she's and jam nut like on old swaybars. Absolutely despise set screws....Also put mounts on outside of frame for a different look. Seems stiffer but not to extreme compared to setup with primal extended wheelbase swaybars. No clearance issues or binding. Going to fix brake servo later today, getting hot outside. Check out storage bins,about 100 bucks off amazon,worth it...

John are you getting out of the hobby? You seem to be selling a lot of your stuff.You are one of the O.G. with the raminator that I followed and learned from.........I will never sell mine even if it just sets in the living room.Go find a stock one ,put a bartalone pipe on it and have fun!!!!! I have every intention of doing just that myself....

No I'm not, just thinning my heard down and parts. I have tons of stuff I'm just never going to end up using so might as well sell it. I have alot of cars and it's getting to the same point. I have 3 cars I've had over 2 years brand new builds that have never even seel fuel yet. Parts on shelves and in totes I've had for several years etc lol. Time to let some go
 
Just some final thoughts on v4 swaybars.....Looks awesome on truck.Performance, maybe a tad bit stiffer but not really much difference. Installation, very simple with stock suspension. Some mild modifications might be necessary if you're using aftermarket parts. If I were to move the bar back to next whole would probably be stiffer but will really lean link bars to much. At fully bottomed ,suspension, my shcs used to attach link to bar it does hit shock cap .But that's because I choose not to use the fhshcs that comes in kit. Again with stock links you should not have any issues. Be careful with the hardware provided to bolt the aluminum parts together. All in all very happy!!!! Took truck for a healthy exercise session........75 degrees, cool wind blowing,Taylor 50 performing like a animal...Ton of tourqe, plenty of speed. Put truck on roof twice and one roll ended on back wheels like a wheels position.....Ran 45 minutes, no breakage.....still got slightly shaky hands from adrenaline rush......great stuff!!!!!!
 
Great write up Mick

Glad the your upgrades make you smile and others appreciate the insight shared.

An uneventful exercise session always nice too.

Enjoy
