i have one it real easy to install focus sport gives good instructions, and you shouldn't have a problem. the biggest thing is drilling the holes. i think since you already have the front go for the rear. I have both front and rear it seemed to give a more consitent feel to the car when going in real hard to a corner. Plus the rear bar look bad a$$.

I have the rear bar too and I love it. I just replaced my suspension to the SVT suspension and added a front and rear bar. It corners better and gives better stability.

Any of you guys have a pic of your rear bar installed? If so i would like to see it, so i know how close it sits from the back seat so i can judge whether or not it will clear my amps and subs. Thanks

There's a picture on the Focus Sport webpage . . . I'm also interested in getting one of these, but it seems that it would "get in the way" of my subs, so what I'll do is just make a custom box this summer. I think it'll be a really fun project.

Do you just drill into the carpet or what, and also do you notice any extra road noise?

you have to take out the carpet to drill the hole because they give you a spacer to ensure the holes are in the same spot. you locate it on joints in the sheet metal inside the truck. Put the carpet back in and poke though the carpet with a sharpe object. there is no extra road noise i nocticed. But like i said before focus sport has great directions, it's very easy. You might want to put some silicon on the washers to prevent water from getting in the truck.
