Rear sway bar options for 2006 XLT ext-cab...

What are my options? What donor vehicle can I get one from? Direct bolt-on?

Shane - Would that be a direct bolt-on? Maybe there's a How-To on here that I overlooked?

Direct bolt on.
Came in 3/4inch (most common) and 1inch (holy grail) diameters.

Stock sway bar on ranger is 1/2inch i think. Wimpy. Just do BII

gewd luck finding the 1in bar. idk of any special model or years those came on, only they are harder than hell to find. I want one too, but settled for a 3/4 with poly bushings. Its good enough for my small truck...

What parts would I have to take off the donor? Obviously the swap bar and mounting brackets; correct? But what else?

everything sway bar related. Bolts, mounting bracket, and bar. Dont get the mounting brackets switched, there is a drivers side and a passengers side.
