Default Re: Is the ranger sport worth the extra money??

Here's my 4x4 XLT.
everything power (windows and shit like that) the only bummer is that it only has two doors. Other than that I chose this over the sport. Looks WAY better. and mobbs the shit out of the trails. and has the bench seat

Yeah the newer sports are almost mainstreamed together with the fx4's, 2010-2011 not much difference between sport 4x4 and fx4. The only difference I think is probably axle ratios, sport is stock with 3.73 and fx4 is a 4.10.

Ahh yes that might be true as well, and I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks the stock ranchos are shit. Don't know bout u but mine are rough as hell. I've been looking at switching them for Rancho rs5000s or something.

Ya the stock Rancho's are pretty stiff, especially over speed bumps...also thinking about getting RS5000's as well.
