Neil, just went from Des Moines, IA down to Worlds of Fun in Kansas City last Monday (we're still there). Started out at 70 psi in all four bags. That had the front end riding just a bit too high so at the first rest stop I lowered the front to 65 psi. That leveled it out and the ride was pretty good also. It took all the bumps, pavement joints and bridge joints just fine, nice smooth ride. However, that stretch of I-35 is in excellent shape. I'll leave the bags at that pressure for the trip back home and double check the ride.

Had a 30-35 mph wind coming at us at a 45* angle, semis didn't bother it at all and I drove with one hand all the way. I'm very pleased with my setup so far.

PS- This trip was also a test on the newly installed 5 Star Tune. It worked flawlessly. Perfect on cruise control on some pretty good hills. Did not downshift into the screaming 5200 rpm 2nd gear even once. Very smooth shifting and it seemed to have more power. I'll check the gas mileage after getting home. I am sold on it!

To answer an earlier question....the front track bar became available in 2004. The chassis received a few upgrades that year.

What's new for 2004 has the F53 changes starting on page 23.
