I added the TRD rear swaybar many years ago to my 2012 Crewmax and noticed an improvement immediately. I have since purchased a TRD front swaybar for the truck and am waiting for the time to install it.

The rear will make the most difference simply because there is none in the rear from the factory. That said, many have upgraded the front using a Sequoia front bar with good results.

I Tried to install the front sway bar yesterday and failed. I didn't realize how heavy 29# was. I am getting old. I managed to get the stock bar off...just couldn't manage to get the new one bolted up. I have some warranty work I have been putting off...I will make an appointment to get it put on Friday. Def more body roll without the bar.

I was thinking about adding the TRD rear sway bar to my '07 Limited 4x4. It's mainly a daily driver, but I do use it for camping / hunting. I've read that if you do any off roading / 4wd you probably shouldn't install the rear sway bar. Is that right?

Yes. ^^^Many have said that. In off road conditions (2WD or 4WD) you want your truck to kind of bend and move with the rough terrain. The sway bar restricts that.

Around town it HAS TO BE the best $200 mod going.

And "yes" a sway bar is heavy. Yes, it is difficult to get it into position, hold it there, and get two bolts in. You need to block up the sway bar. Raise it off the ground. The shipping box can get you really close (set sway bar on top of box). I did it with stacks of 2x6 and 1x4 pieces of wood (this method allows you to incrementally raise it a piece of wood at a time). If your girl has stout big tits tell her to lay under your Tundra for a few minutes.

Anyone here added either the front or rear TRD sway bar and can provide some feedback? I have a 2018 CM 4x4
When I had the TRD Offroad shocks on the truck the rear TRD Swaybar was a great addition. I've swapped the Offfroads with the TRD Pro setup and tried with both the rear swaybar on and off. With the Prod setup (and I expect other higher-quality shocks) the rear swaybar is actually a detriment. I noticed much less bed-hop and the ride was a bit more smooth without the rear swaybar on the Pro setup than with it. I have a little body-roll back with the Pros minus the swaybar but it's not anywhere near what it was woth the Offroad setup before I put the swaybar on. From what I've read all 2014+ Tundra's come with the front swaybar already on from the factory...not 100% sure on this one tho.

The rear sway bar is in my top 3 all time favorite mods. I use my truck for hunting 4 wheeling pulling trailers etc, it has never gotten in my way and has only helped with stability and roll on the truck, night and day without it. Highly recommend it.

I had the TRD Sport front sway bar installed today. After 3 days without a front sway bar, I most say that I am happy. A lot less swaying on the nose. A noticeable difference. I am happy with the mod.

I have both TRD sway bars on my 2018 and I will say the TRD version up front made a good difference. The stock piece is a feather weight. I do have a 5.5" lift which I would imagine, makes it easier to feel the difference. Money well spent in my opinion.
