If I replace the front and rear stock sway bars do I need the traction bars as well ?
I'm in Canada so I'm not sure what brand to go with Hellwig ,Hotchkiss
Suggestions ?

Sway bars will not prevent leaf spring wrap-up and/or wheel hop under hard acceleration. Check out Moe's Traction bars that are custom made for our Rams and powder coated almost any color you want.

Here is his link http://moesperformance.com/index.php

Yeah, a GOOD set of Shocks really make a difference. I like the Bilstein Shocks, but almost anything is better then the Factory (cheap) shocks. I don't have a 4x4 like you, so I am sure someone will give you Brand and part number info for your needs.
Is that Yellow Ram in the Avitar your Ride? Looks Sweet! Got a bigger picture?

If you plan on lowering your truck in the very near future, then I'd wait.

I have a set of Hellwig HD traction springs on my 4x4 they work nice but stiffens the ride and may have added about a half an inch to the height but then again it doesn't install below the axle over all I like them and were cheap.
