No. To be honest, I don't like them. They force your CV joints to run at a slight angle that they weren't designed to run at, and shorten their loves a bit. Also, depending on the kit and how much adjustment there is on the standard suspension, they can mess up your suspension geometry. We have the 4x4 but only really because we live in a rural area with lots of hills and need the traction in Winter. We don't do any "proper" off-roading.
