Might help if we knew what you're referring to.

Cheater for what? More leverage on, say, a ratchet or wrench?

I use the top half of my 7 ton jack bar as a cheater bar. That only works when I'm in my garage though. Have not had reason to use one while on the road.

It is for putting the sway bar in. I can raise the jack and lift the truck but it don't always left it high enough

Sounds like the Equal-i-zer bar. Any good RV dealer should have one.

For my weight distribution chains, I just use a short piece of pipe...which you can usually get at any hardware store.

Go to Lowes/HD and get a 12",18" or 24" pc of 3/4" black pipe.

Someone stole mine off the front frame where I left it out while parked in a cg in Colorado last year. At least they didn't take the wd bar/chains and sway hardware. That nice wd pipe tool must have been all they needed.

Been using a piece of scrap pipe ever since. Notice the old iron scrap is getting harder to find (for free) with all the new plastic stuff and the popularity of metal recycling programs.

If its the Equalizer tool that's different than a plain pipe.
