2011 F350 Steering Dampener Replacement

Hey all I am looking to replace my factory steering dampener for a Bilstein 5100 series dampener. Problem is, Bilstein doesn't list one for the F350 after 2007. The part number for the 2005-2007 is 33-170862. Anyone out there know if there is a dampener that fits the 2011? I have been looking at the icon dual stabilizer setup, but an exposed shock in that position doesn't look like it will survive a winter. As for the Rancho kit, lets just say I don't really like red and we'll leave it at that...Thanks.

I keep seeing more and more of you guys swapping out stabilizers. What's the deal?

Just came out or is it still in engineering? I don't see anything on their site and waiting for a reply back from Carli.

They are now available although the site isn't updated yet. Here is a pic of one installed on my 2008:

It is a definite improvement over stock and does a better job handling the 37's on my truck. My factory one looks like a screen door closer and probably works about the same.
