Les Schwab has quoted $24,00 locally per tire to remove and remount
Pricing must really be high where you are. In central Florida, where nothing is cheap when snowbirds are here, the cost at a major tire retailer was $8.00 per tire to install the Dually valves.

I've jhad the braided extentions in 2 moho's. The first, they were a disaster, losing air, failing, needing replacement.

The ones on the knight (knock on wood) have been flawless. I've never lost air, never had to add any, and with the tst system, always know my air pressure.

The best way is with solid extensions.
But u hafta unmount and remount, and probably rebalance the tires to install them, and they by definition place each pair in a particular position.

This may not be what the original poster is looking for, but may be what others are looking for. I wanted to eleminate the braided hoses on my rims because they were a pain to polish around and I didn't like the looks of them. I had looked at dually valves and thought they were outrageously priced for what they are.

When I put my new rear tires on, I just bought a long metal valve stem for the inner dual from the tire store. He had them from 3" to 12" lengths. He charged me $10.00 each, which I thought was still expensive. I've found them on line, including here patchboy: TR #510, 5 1/2" Nickel Plated 90 degreeTruck Tire Valve, 1 Valve for less. The metal stem on the outer dual I turned and change the bend a little. They're very soft and easy to bend where you want them.

On the 22.5 alloy rims, they make a rubber grommet that fits in one of the wheel holes that supports the long inner stem from dangling. I still didn't like that look. I made a support out of a thin sheet of aluminum that attached over the wheel studs between the duals. Here is the pattern:

Now my wheels look like this with the long valve stems:
