No lift kit or other aftermarket items on my truck, but yes, the 4X4 does add a couple inches to bed height.
After discussions with dealer, it seems that the Dometic "Penguin Low Profile" A/C units are no longer 9 1/2" tall due to a recent production design change....My B/R A/C has the Penguin model numbers, but it is 11" tall. I guess they should have installed something like a Coleman Mach8 which is only 8" tall....... Waiting to hear if it is compatable with ducts/thermostat wiring...
Took another measurement with the RV unhitched and perfectly level (which is the recommended towing height) and I am 13' 7" to the top of B/R A/C. This would have required a permit in Indiana (and most other states) when it left the factory...... Waiting for return call from factory now as to how to proceed....
