They have a toll free number on their web site, option 4 for dually valve stems. I was able to just catch Kelly before they closed up for the day 5pm Pacific. She was very knowledgeable. She gave me the kit number that I needed just from my model year, and chassis. She verified that I have dual steel wheels with oval holes. I'm always impressed when I tell someone I have a Ford F53, and they don't reply with something like "you mean a 450, or super Duty?" Still amazed that most guys who spend their entire work days behind a counter in a parts store have no idea what a Ford F53 is. But I digress.

$140 bucks seems like a lot to spend on valve stems, but I've had it with whatever I can find to "make it work" And it's cheap compared to the price of a tire.

I just ordered new tires, and I've got a few weeks before my next trip. I think I'm going to bite the bullet.

Who votes for brass, and who votes for chrome, and why?

I see no reason why these would not support sensors, but I'm going to call them back tomorrow to discuss it further.
I have the TST TPMS on my dually valves. The inside stems (long ones) had to be bent a bit to fit them but they work fine.

Seems like I should have known that, but anyway, I do now. Definitely going with the chrome, and finding a way to calm myself down after paying that much for valve stems.
