I put in the 7271 Hellwig bar yesterday. I have not driven it yet because when installing I pinched a tube in the U-bolt. I removed the U-bolt and fixed it but I don't want to run the truck until I figure out what I pinched. I have an arrow pointing at it in this picture. Anyone have an idea what it is and if I am ok to use? It is on the back side of the axle.
I did the EXACT same thing :icon_mad:. Got an alert light on the dash when i started it... Corrected the install. Tube was smashed but intact. light on dash hasn't returned :smile2:.

Was told Ford engineering recommends not to because having a stiffer truck sends more energy through to the 5th wheel (bumps in the road) so the trailer absorbs more impact if you will.

My 2015 DRW came with a sway bar installed from factory.

Installed the BigWig today. Short test ride gave good results with no issues. Tomorrow will be a good test with HWY on/off ramp turns. I need a set of calipers to know the front OEM sway bar size to compare to the front Hellwig dimensions.
@larrgh: You need to see a Hellwig beside the OEM for yourself.
