Rear sway bar?

So I had noticed at one point that my truck does not have a rear sway bar. Thought it was kinda weird my truck being a lariat and I've seen less equipped trucks that do have a rear sway bar. I asked my buddy that I bought the truck from and he said he didn't take it off as far as he knew it didn't have one. Should my truck have one? would it be worth it for med to get one for it, does it actually make much of a difference?

I'm not 100% certain but I know the trim package isn't so much a factor in the areas like sway bars, etc, however, specific configurations like Camper Packages, Plow Packages, etc, can have an impact on whether a vehicle is equipped with things like a rear sway bar.

As far as the difference they make, I know that the aftermarket stuff from reputable companies like Hellwig make a big difference, especially when hauling heavy loads. I'd be inclined to go w/ something from them before I'd spring for OEM parts.

That's also an option. I'd say if you have the cash, go w/ Hellwig or the like. If not, I'm sure adding the swaybar would give you some extra motion/roll control.

Trim package makes no difference. It depends on the suspension package the truck was ordered with as stated above. There is a noticeable difference in handling. oem from junk yard would be the cheapest option but maybe not the best performance...
