Facts. Sell the Haynes/Chilton and get a TSM (for free).
Not all FSJs came with the anti-roll bar. I wouldn't say it was "needed" but if my truck did not have one, I would probably add one at some point.
First check your frame to see if you have the pads to mount it. There would be 2 pads with 2 holes each, welded to the bottom of your frame, directly above your steering linkage.
If you have the pads, installing an anti-roll bar is as simple as buying the parts and bolting it in.
If you do not have the pads, it is kind of a pain to install them and probably not worth the effort.
