Steering Stabilizer

Shouldn't the upper stabilizer be removed from this
truck with the lower dual stabilizer installed?

Doesn't have to be but I took mine off. It just makes it harder to steer unless they have gutted one of them

I suppose it depends on the valving, maybe they just really want to rock the BDS and show off the shocks, however if there not revalved then its gonna wear the steering box quicker, i don't see a need for 3.

From the looks of it, unless it is brand freakin new, it doesn't go off road much anyways.

I'm thinking it's just a marketing picture for BDS, then, to
show off the dual and single stabilizers. I'll remove the
single when I go with a dual ...

Oh, here is the truck:

I find that there are so many different looks for this model
of truck that look great that I can't make up my mind as to
what is my favorite. This red truck is definitely up there in
the top three for me, though. It does need some dirt on
it, though

I would suggest removing the upper stabilizer. This particular system is not quite as bad as some but in most lifted applications compression of the suspension deflects the stabilizer which translates to feedback at the steering wheel.

Here is a similar 8" lifted red '08 SD:
