More Questions:
where are you in the country?  Climate: Does it get freezing cold?  if so, a DryerBox installed with no insulation may sweat inside causing water puddling. 
Is the future dryer on a pedestal or on floor? 
What is the exterior siding?  brick, stucco, lap siding...

If you are demo'ing the wallboard, then, depending on what "mechanicals" are preventing it, I may consider adding a firring strip to each stud if it was 2x4 framing and use the 425. 

Usually i prefer to help you on the phone. 

Also, a great resource is this gallery of picture stories from other installs:

Feel free to call me at work: five six one five 29-4607  Thanks

Hi
Need some advice. We have an older house and unsure of 2 x 4 or 2 x 6.  The middle of the existing.Vent which goes out to the exterior is only 17” from The floor.  I would like to avoid crating a new venting hole to the exterior. 

Any ideas about getting the right box the first time.  Since there are a few unknowns in this case I am prepared to buy backup parts.  We will Be demoing the old wall’s drywall

Thanks in advance

Thank you for the info. I'm going to return the dryertrap. Whats your opinion on my setup with the dryerbox and 2×6 walls. I'm thinking a R-19 insulation should be fine and no need to do the 1 hour fire rating. Does that seem correct?

I am not aware of any images of a painted plastic wall vent.  Here is the link to the plastic paint.

I am not a fan of a inline screened filter like the DryerTrap.  They were invented to keep lint from building on the booster fan blades, but users started thinking it would minimize the lint accumulation on the roofs.  There are circumstances where a trap is worthy, but, there is significant restriction in air flow and another task to remember to take care of.  I am fond of a conduit system that is super clean, with minimal direction changes and a termination hood that provide no to minimal back pressure.  Hope this helps.
