I wish the sway bar kit for my F-150 was as cheap as the Ranger one:)

I had front and rear sway bars on my Ranger

Roush and all the other "companies" often sell FORD parts as their own, keep in mind that every company out there cannot possibly make their own version of EVERYTHING.

So, I wouldn't be surprised if the Roush kit is entirely all Ford spec stuff, they may have re-engineered some minor parts but thats probably it.

Yup, it's pretty much all Ford OEM stuff. Nothing that would identify it as either Roush or Hillbank. Hard to tell it's Ford parts unless you know their funky numbering scheme.
The good news is that it's specfically Ford parts, so you know they will fit perfectly. Non OEM stuff usually requires some modifying or tweaking.

I finally got around to adding the sway bars install page to my website. This turned out to be one of the more detailed pages. The instructions that came with the kit were written by someone with a left/right problem, so I had to fix a lot of errors. The page is a combo of their instructions, my corrections, and photos from myself and Roush.

dang, I guess its good to live close to Hillbank, I got the exhaust for 100 bucks, the intake for 30, and the front and rear sway bars for 20 bucks!! I still haven't opened the sway bars yet

ohh also, my exhaust is up for grabs to anyone in so cal, I got 3 1/2 inch magnaflow tips that angle out each side cause I didn't like the ones the kit came with. Switching to flowmaster cause these tips wouldn't look good with fiberglass rear fenders.
