    I say leave it black, but if you are sure that you want to paint it red or yellow I'd say red. Or you could just do like myself (& many others) and completely remove the rear sway bar :thumbsup:

    Get a new swaybar if you haven't upgraded it yet. Then paint it. Explorer Express swaybars are great. My vote is leave it black.

    Red, Orange, Red, Orange... I can't decide. I think both. How about Orange or Yellow with Red flames or maybe just Black. I vote Black.

    honestly i say leave it black, or remove it... if its for show purposes then red.. but if you really use your truck offorad, it any other color than removed or black is going to get looked at by real wheelers as being a poser.....

    I guess I'm a poser who would paint his blue, if any real wheelers were dis-enchanted with my vehicles appearance that's OK. Besides they likely can't make it where I am going anyway when those 2 little switches light up, so they won't have to look at the bits of blue showing through the filth. :D

    Damn I am fantasizing and getting eager for the next mod already.......sorry ;)


    And truly a poser is a jacked up 2x4
    LOL J/K jim :)
