Default Fx4 Steppie?

just by my house the other day i say a single cab (i believe, possibly 4dr, i can't really remember) black Ranger that was a stepside but had the Fx4 decals on it. it was driving by so i couldn't really look at it but it looked decently genuine to be an fx4, but then again could've possible just been decals...

any thoughts? did ford make a stepside fx4?

I own a 4x4 stepside, but it doesn't have the fx4 or 4x4 logo's on it. It's just got the Ford logo's and says Ranger on the side.

I believe so because I have seen an FX4 with a steppie. It was an '03 model.

They aren't anything special like the Level II's, trucks in question are just called Fx4 Off Road and they replaced the 4x4 Off Road model in '03. You can find 'em in stepside from '03 - 05.

There were no US Spec reg cab Fx4's. Those only happened in Canada and I don't believe stepside was an option.

oh i see. im glad my 02 Fx4 is actually a real fx4 not just an xlt 4x4 with different decals. its kinda strange ford would offer an xlt 4x4 with a different trim a year later and call it the same thing but have it be something different.

Makes perfect sense to me..... Ford axed their other "4x4 off road" models on the F150 and Super Duty's....might as well axe that name on the ranger and make the whole brand match eachother and confuse idiots on here or elsewhere that don't know the difference between a real Fx4 and a poser Fx4 and go apeshit crazy when they've got an Fx4 that's nothing special with ooooooooooooooo...4.10 LS rear end and a gas tank and tcase skid. ooooooooooooooooo!!! FX4!! lol.

'02 Fx4 Off Road = '03+ Fx4 Level II
'02 4x4 Off Road = '03+ Fx4 Off Road

Simple name change switcheroo.
