Sway Control Bar vs Truck Sway Control

So I am about to purchase a 2014 ram truck that has the sway control built into the truck using it's braking system etc. My question is, i have a weight distribution hitch along with sway control bar. Can i use both at the same time? If not, is one better then the other? Do i disable the trucks sway control or not use the sway control bar? Advice? Opinions?

Use both. The bar will help fight sway starting in the first place, the truck's sway control will be there as backup if something goes horribly wrong.

There's no use crying over spilled milk, unless it's on your keyboard.

The built in sway control in your truck is there as a last ditch effort thing for when all the proper sway control devices have failed to control your problem. Use both and hope you never have to find out how good your truck a/s system is.
