+1

Found them particularly noisy when gravel got into the treads. I also found them quite pricey and hard to balance...and not that good in winter conditions. But damn, they look good.

No offence taken. I agree this 2011 Ranger FX4 is too "cute", not very truck like. My old Ranger was a 2003 FX4 "Level II" and it looked like a truck, felt like a truck and rattled like a truck. When I first sat in the 2011, I said that it felt lower. Sure enough the 2003 FX4 had a total height of 68.75 inches. The 2011 FX4 has a height of 67.5 inches....a difference of 1.25 inches. Not a big difference, but a difference all the same.

I think a 3" BL on the new 2011 will do wonders for this truck. I think it will feel more like a truck.

Cheers.

I slid through the stop sign by the house lol not fun!

Now, that looks like a truck. Is that a BL or SL or both. Nice set of wheels.....what size? Good work on your truck.

Hey i have the same red 2011 sport 4x4, and i wanted to lift it soon and wasn't sure how much i should lift it. everything on it is stock. how much of a lift is your ranger? and what size tires do you have? I like yours cause its not too much but looks good.

Nice truck Crunch.

My 2010 is over 27,000KM and still rattle free / solid. I don't get the comment it's not a truck? If it applies to this truck guess it applies to every Ranger?

Same comment on the FX4 not being an actual FX4? Guess there's never been an FX4 in history because it's always been just a collection of options sold as a package with a label to designate it a model.

I just picked up a 2011 sport 4x4. Just a word of advice: make sure you have front mudflaps. Our wonderful Saskatchewan winter weather made my rear fender flares a little too brittle. I didn't even make it 500km from new before rocks destroyed my rear flares. Ford warranty won't do anything about it. Other than that you're right I love the way my little truck feels.
