Default does my 04 xl have sway bars?

I was wondering if my 2004 ranger xl 2wd 4cyl 5sp has a swaybar. It seems to have some side to side sway when I hit bumps on the freeway and when I kneeled down before coming into work tonight I couldnt really see one (the ground was wet so i didnt look to hard). If not is it something that can be added to tighten up the ride? Right now its not really an issue but I'm gonna be spending the winter in Michigan and it feels like it would be a problem on snowy roads the way it is now.

you may or may not have one on the front. just gonna have to get down and look.
as to the back, im sure you dont have one. you can put one on off a b2 bronco, i put on a 1 inch one from one of those and i love it.

So when you added it did it make your ride better? Is it more stable over bumps now? Also I know it will be different depending on where it comes from but how much did it cost ya?

99% positive you have a sway bar on the front. Unless somebody took it off for some reason. Maybe one of the end links are broken or something.
