YES, it has fixed it. I have a nice solid feel again and when I hit bumps/expansion joints the truck is solid. Love it. I am still a little nervous but....

Glad to hear the DW's gone!

Common sense is like deodorant, the people who need it most NEVER use it.

Yes! So I am I. That last wobble I had, had me stopped on the side of the road for a good 10 second while I settled down.

I hit that same bump a few times and different rates of speed. I did noticed there is a series of tiny bumps that leads up to it, so I wonder if those built it up and then boom!

Some people believe it was more the trackbar itself.. some say it's the combo of that and the tires that made it. I had almost wish I hit it after I got the tires on to see if the tires were the cause.

But the truck feels so much better. So solid now. Front end had a little wobble or play in it and could feel it knock a few times over tiny bumps. I thought it was the steering box cause there was some play in the shaft. But with the trackbar replaced. It's gone. Dealer said the steering box was fine. So I am going with the trackbar needed to be replaced.

I am going to do them in bedliner from a company called Defender Pro. A do it yourself product.

What is on there now? Believe it or not.. Plasti-dip. I wanted to see how it would look.. and I like it.

Very nice MegaCab! Now you need to black out the grill, headlights, and rockers and it will be my trucks twin! Well not exactly...you will have to take it out and get some custom pin striping on the trails..then we'll match! My paint hasn't looked that good in a long time! Very nice.
