I heard some guys at work talking about how they cut their friend's sway bar with a hack saw. I'm wondering, what benefit does this give the truck? I am thinking that if the engineers decided that a sway bar was necessary, why cut it? I could not gather from their conversation why this was done and didn't want to be nosey.

Well, rather than cut yours off, you can unbolt it instead. Adds a little more flex offroad, less high speed cornering on road if you're into that.

i wouldnt take it off if u do a lot of highway driving, not only does it lean more, but that also stresses ur springs more. but off road u can get like 2 - 3 inches of more flex supposively, i just unbolt it at the links and it works for me

just undo the 2 bolts at the top of each endlink (either 9/16 or 14mm) and the bar will tilt up. That is all you need to do and it would take less time than cutting. Try it this way before ditching it. Most guys who ditch them either have good coilovers or SAS. When i take mine off, body lean is much more noticeable, but flex seems better.
