They are ideal on any truck making decent horsepower because of the axle wrap you will now have. They aren't necessary though.

This is an extreme case because our truck has a 10" lift and 40" tires. Watching this video you get the point. As Jeff said, they are a great addition to any truck making high HP.

A friend of mine has a set of One Up Offroad bars on his F450, they helped a lot. Real simple to install and all bolt on. The newer trucks springs are so much softer seems to encourage axle wrap, even on a stock truck.

They make a huge difference in shifting when running the high HP tunes.

Would they be necessary on a 2WD stock height truck running Hot Damn 300?

As stated above they are not necessary but are a nice addition

I know Dave from One Up Offroad sells quite a few across the border. Where are you located? We actually have a tech day on June 23rd down here in Oregon. Several Canadians from BC are coming down. If you are in that area you could come down and install them and drive home!
