This is a 4x4 but I think its still lowered. Probably 2" in the Front and still 3-4 inches in the rear.

I don't believe so, the duallys are a lot lower now from the factory than they were 3 or 4 years ago. I didn't realize it until I got my truck home and went to hook it up to my boat and had to raise my adjustable hitch to make the trailer level. Also the dually's are level from the factory to make it easier for hooking to a gooseneck or 5th wheel, that's what several dealers told me at least.

Im only going based on experience of how these Wheel Companies in Miami(american force, and diesel wheels) does things. thats probably a 305/45/24 tire on the second black dually and the wheel gap would be alot more if it was stock height. These guys have new springs made for the front to bring them down a bit and in the rear they usually remove the overload spring and then add a set of helper bags. The 4x4 doesnt alow alot of lowering without some more custom work. This is just my opinion but I do think its lowered slightly.

Also dealers typically dont know anything and they will come up with a theory on whatever they are trying to sell and they will repeat it so many times that they start to believe it.

Again I don't believe so, the dually's sit quite a bit lower than the srw trucks, even if it's a 4x4. Here's the before picture of the same truck.

And here is a picture of my F-450 right before I picked it up it sits lower also..

Also the aftermarket wheel/tire combo is at least a 3" bigger diameter than the factory 245/75/17 tires.
