Default 4x4 Poser

I fly out to work from a heliport. This morning when I arrived at the heliport, parked directly across from me was a truck similar to mine...year, 4x4, paint color, tires...everything was quite similar. As is probably evident from my thread titled, "Factory LIFT KIT??", I have a few questions at to the history of my suspension, so as I'm looking at this guy's truck, I see a solution to my suspension questions: Climb your ass under his truck and see what his looks like. Good idea, right? Well, when I got under there, I noticed that his suspension does NOT have the lift blocks, but wait.....he's not even a 4x4, despite the decals that are proudly platered on his truck.

Then, about an hour later, this different guy drives up in a GMC "Z71" to unload his baggage prior to going park his car. The GMC looks alright, single cab, probably a 6" lift or so, on some 35s....but if you look closely at the front axle, there's no differential or anything that would resemble 4x4 components. Isn't the "Z-71" package indicate that it's a 4x4?

Anyways, is this a common occurance? People pretend that they have a 4x4???
