Give it a few years Ty...really no need yet since your truck is so darn new and I assume very low mileage. I replaced my sagging B bars with #1's when the truck had about 70k on it.

#1 part numbers:
F67Z-5B326-FA Pass side
F67Z-5B326-FB Driver side

I got mine from a ford dealer hook up($80 for the two) and I used these part numbers.

What torsion bars do you have currently? Do you even know? It's very possible being that your truck is a 4.0 4x4 that you have #1 bars now.

Look in the door jam on the drivers side at the sticker. There should be a part that says SPR. Under that should be BBKK or 11CC or something similar. Tell us what you have.

EDIT: I went from crappy F bars to #1 bars on my truck when I had 90k miles on her. Helped a ton.
