Assuming you are talking about downloading at native resolution an area of a map service to your local machine, yes, there are various ways this could be done using ArcGIS. The question that springs to mind is whether your license allows you to do so legally.
I think your best bet would be to zoom in to 1:1000, then expand the data frame in the layout to the size needed to capture your area at that zoom level. Adjust your paper size and layout as needed, and then export.
I actually tried making the data frame huge - 34x44. The issue I ran into was the GeoTiff export doesn't work in layout view so the frame size seemed to be irrelevant.
I am really not sure what my license is entitled to. This is for some network diagrams I'm making of our own internal structure - I basically want to overlay our equipment on top of a zoomable satellite map. I won't be publishing it or selling it, it will be used as a reference for a department of about 10 people internally.
I did zoom to the closest cache level and it came out to 1:1,128. When I scrape that out and export at that resolution it comes out to about 50 exports to cover the 2 square mile or so area I'm looking to capture.
I was able to play around with the extents and get a bigger export from the layout view but it unfortunately couldn't add GeoTiff data into the picture - it would only give me the pixels and not the exact coordinates.
