Default help identifying ranger (fx4)

im in the market for a new truck and i came across this 03 ranger fx4, its labeled as "2003 Ford Ranger 4x4 SuperCab FX4 ". I was looking at the pictures and it has the fx4 decal only on one side of the truck, driver side, kinda raised an eyebrow. So im planning on taking a trip down and looking at it. Im wondering what i should be looking for to prove its an fx4. Do they come in both the 3.0 and 4.0? here are some pictures of it:

I'm gonna say that's not a true FX4 they didn't come with that style grille

of course they could have just changed it out

They came stock with the honeycomb grille

That is the correct center console they come with though

Plus it only has FX4 on one side and not the other. Person to cheap to buy 2

Fx4 only came with a 4.0 I believe

Justin, since there was no Level II in '03, wasn't all the stuff you listed optional FX4 equipment?

I took another look at the pics, and I see it only has the window visors on one side! Since the FX4 sticker and visors are only on one side, it makes me wonder if there was body work done on the passenger side. Also, I've never seen an FX4 with that grille (already mentioned) or a color-keyed front valance.

Tough to say. Could be it just had some mods done. I'd definitely look to see if there's any sign it's been repainted.

Also does not have the blue/red inserts on the seats. Get a carfax on it (not sure how much you can even trust those things anymore) most likely been in an accident.

yea i think so. hes asking 6500 for it and it only has 59k miles on it, i think thats still a deal even if its been in an accident and everything was repaired? So i should look for the inserts in the seats and anything else? thanks for all the help so far.

I had an accident with my ZX2. Hood, front bumper, both fenders, and power steering pump were replaced at the shop my insurance company recommended. Never showed up in the Carfax report.

I can tell from the pics the inserts are not present actually. My only concern if it was in an accident is possible frame damage. Make sure the title is clear and not salvaged.

Do'h I think it is just the FX4 OffRoad package, not the level II package.

All in all still a very odd package. It has an EDGE valance, a 2wd XLT grille, I am pretty sure those wheels were only found on the EDGE, I still think both FX4 trims had a black or tan carpet option only.

Anyone else ever seen Ranger seats with the lumbar support like this one is shown to have??
