BlueOX TigerTrak

I'm consider a set (front and rear) of TigerTrak track bars as an upgrade for my 2007 370XL.

Any experiences with these or other track bars on the Georgetowns?

The only thing we've added is Firestone Air Springs but I'm not sure if the rating is still the same as when we bought ours. They really helped with the side to side rocking when a big truck goes by. Other than those everything else is Ford factory installed.

They sell all types of upgrade suspension stuff.

Ford has the front track bar standard on the 2006 and newer F53 chassis. There was no 2005 chassis year so you might want to check your chassis date and take a peek under there. I doubt a different one would be much of an improvement.

My 2008 chassis has one and I have no major complaints about the handling except in very high cross winds ill get the tail wagging the dog. A rear track bar may help with that and is on my wish list but low priority.

Thanks for the feedback. Per my VIN, my chassis appears to be a 2006. I'll take a peek to confirm the front bar.

My rear gets pushed around pretty bad in the high winds. Living in Oklahoma probably makes my situation a little worse than most.

I found the Blue OX for $499 and it's a "no drill" install so I could do that in the driveway.

Anyone in the central plains from North Dakota to Texas knows what "wind" really means

Exactly! I'm pretty sure I can get upwards of 30 MPG with a proper Okie tailwind.
