Short wheel base, not dually right?
By TV wiggle, do you mean trailer sway?
Are you using a weight distribution hitch and sway control?
Are your tires on the truck load range E and inflated to the maximum?
A sway bar is also called an 'anti roll bar.' They are designed to reduce the vehicle body roll from side to side. On cars they have them on the front to resist the car body roll to the 'outside' on corners. In my opinion, unless the trailer sway is causing your truck body to roll
from side to side, a sway bar may stiffen the suspension a bit more, but won't stop the rear of the truck being pushed from side to side by the trailer.
