F-250 Rear Sway Bar upgrade!

Has anyone added a rear sway bar to there F-250??? I'm thinking about doing this to get a more stable ride and am wondering who has done this and which route they went, OEM or aftermarket?

Dave at Hellwig told me they were able to increase speed by 10mph during skidpad testing with a new F-250 after adding their sway bars.
I realize that doesn't apply if you're concerned with towing stability; but 10mph in a big truck is impressive, and I'm planning to add Hellwig bars front and rear.

^^^Hellwig is something I'm considering. They are beefier than the OEM's for sure and I think on one site I visited, they were cheaper as well! Let me know if you plan to go this route So we can compare our experiences.

I have them on my other truck, which is only a 1/2 ton, but they are really beefy, you will break the mounts before the bar bends. Plan to put them on my '14.

Is there anyway possible you could stop by your dealership have them run your VIN# and get the exact part numbers for us wanting to do this???
