#1 bars are the stiffest and offer the best resistance to sagging

its a crapshoot as to what trucks got them and what ones didnt. i know the FX4's did, my 01 XLT offroad had #1 bars, but other than that it seems like ford just threw in there whatever bars they had laying around. lol

You have F torsion bars (and code 3 leaf packs out back). F's are the softest factory Ranger T bars, B's are medium and #1's are the strongest/stiffest riding. Changing from F's to 1's is a big jump and would work best only if you're adding a lot of weight to the front end.

Part numbers for the #1 bars:
F67Z-5B326-FA Pass side bar
F67Z-5B326-FB Driver side bar
