he probably doesnt need it since he's not going bigger than a 35" so its not over powering his steering box. or he could try hydraulic assist steering if needed.

theres big rigs and dump trucks (i forget who makes them) that use full Hydro steering, so i dont see how that it can be illegal.

its a gray area, nothing really says it is legal and nothing really says it isnt legal.

hydro assisted is what the dump trucks and so forth have....they still have regular ole steering in them.......hydro assisted steering isn't illegal.....

i know in Indiana it is......a friend of mine has it on his mud truck....he got a citation for it last summer.....and the truck is licensed and insured......all of it is street legal except for steering and bumper height in Indiana.....he gets pulled over just about every time he takes it on the road.....

What is the fuse # for the ABS? I remember you mentioned it waayy back at some point.. I figure since your truck is a year newer it ought to be the same one on mine.

you shouldnt need to pull the fuse. atleast i am assuming the reason you want to pull it is hopes the that ABS light will turn off? yeah wont happen.

you need to pull the bulb.

if the ABS light is on then the ABS is not functioning at all so no need to pull the fuse.

its fuse 14 or 15 btw.

notta problem.......i have been debating on cutting down the 44 to fit under my truck, but since i want to move out and buy a house, it is kinda on the back burner right now......if i can sell it, it is gone...

you don't wheel your truck that much and when you do, it isn't hard, so i bet that 30 holds up longer than you think and longer than people tell you it will.......shoot Jeeps run them for along time without problems.....

Cool Zach. Did you call them to find out about mounting? That should help with the sway problem your having.

yeah i called them, it was the same kit as the TJ in width, then he said it comes with the DOM and i would just need to make the mount for it

i will have to work on my steering stops so the tire doesnt hit them but that is easy.

You will like it once you get it mounted. What is cool about the currie anti rock is that you can adjust how stiff you want the sway bar, plus you lose very little travel with it.

skyjackers are more DD worthy. they have a locking hub on them to lock when your on the street, then unlock to allow for the use of "no sway bar"
