Lifting a 2011 F350 Dually?

Anyone know if there are any lift systems for a 2011 F350 Dually available. I've looked everywhere I can think of on the internet and can't find anything. Better yet, does anyone know what the differences between a F350 dually and SRW in the front suspension if any? Also, what are the differences in the rear suspension between a 2008-2010 dually vs 2011? I'm thinking I might be able to use 2011 F350 SRW lift for the front and maybe a 2010 F350 dually rear suspension lift in the rear.

From the homework I have done there is nothing different. Fabtech, Rize, Pro Comp all say there kit will work on a DRW. How big are you going? What size and type of Tire/Wheel

I'm not sure that a 2008-2010 kit will work especially since its a dually. A dually has a totally different ubolt configuration in the back. The ubolts are up side down to those of a single rear wheel. Also, BDS, CST and icon all have different part #s for the front kits. I wonder exactly what the difference is?

Also, does anyone know exactly how far the wheels will stick out of the dually fenders using a 2 inch spacer with stock rims and 35x12.50s. Around here having the wheels stick out further then the body is an absolute no no and will result in an inspection ticket.

So far I think what the plan will be a BDS 6 inch front and maybe some custom OUO offroad style blocks in the back with custom ubolts and swaybar links.
