Go to the junk yard and look at a 30mm 99-07 rear bar and brackets. Bar will fit and brackets may..

Yes, and I love it! Not only did it solve my issue while my slide-in camper was onboard but it now corners more like a lowered 2WD truck with Indy tires.

Well, it did with my 35" Toyo Muds but I just put 37" Toyo Mud's on and had to slow down a little. The center of gravity change really hurt that feature.

I don't remember now but I don't think I really noticed a harsher ride once it was on - just much better cornering when empty and it completely cured the sway problem with the camper loaded! DO IT!

Rear swaybars when the truck is empty will make for a rougher ride quality but its worth it for the handling..
