Dual shocks?

I'm looking for some pictures of dual shock mounts front and rear. Any kind that are put onto a ranger both front and rear and will this really help the ride?

eh its not really that hard to do and its not really anything more to go wrong. IMO. But people on RPS say that unless I get shocks ment for dual shock purpose it will have a stiff ride.

I know I have skyjacker nitro shocks on the rear and it's STIFF. I can't even imagine how stiff it would be if you have more than four shocks on a Ranger. I know you would get dual-shock-purpose shocks but why spend money on 8 shocks that'll perform like 4? Is it just for looks?

Put about 300 pounds in the bed. Smooths them right out.
