New stabilizer shock for '05 F250

I need to replace my steering stabilizer shock/damper whatever you want to call it.
Most of my front end parts are Moog, other than my Rancho 9000's. So preferably I'd like to stick with a Moog stabilizer. I was curious if they had a heavy-duty option, compared to just a regular Moog stabilizer? I always prefer to upgrade with the best, heaviest duty option out there.

I was also wondering if anyone would recommend the Rancho dual steering stabilizer dampers? The truck is a 2005 F250 FX4, I don't have a lift kit, but I do have 305 BFG A/T's and am curious if the Rancho dual steering stabilizers would be good to run?

Thanks.

I'm interested in this too, I was thinking about going with the rancho dual stabilizer also.

If I were to get the dual steering stabilizers, is that just a direct replacement for the single steering stabilizer shock from the factory, or do you use both? :p

Awesome, thanks for the picture. I think I'm going to go with the Moog SSD131 super trail boss, I've read some good things about that, and most of my front end parts are already Moog so why not?

Now it's just deciding between a Rancho dual steering stabilizer or topgun, I've heard good about both.

I have the same setup from TopGun....
ZMANN...Is that a front Receiver mount on your truck? Did you built it or did you buy it. Can you post a picture of it?
Thanks
