I think most 4x4's come with stabalizers.
Like all stock shocks they are prolly crap.

My lift came with a new stabilizer, is it really beneficial to get dual stabilizers??

single (good one) is fine up to 35s... But I've killed my Rancho RS5000 single. Think banging it on the ground a few times was bad for it...

3 nice dents. Doesn't work as well as before.

I think I'm going to replace it with a dual "universal" setup, and try to raise them above the axle tubes so they don't continue to get crushed.

Well on my half ton the stabilizer is mounted on the drag link at an angle so I don't really have to worry about hitting it on something.

There are aftermarket stabilizers that will fit a truck without lift. I had a rancho stabilizer on my truck before I had a lift.
