Default FX4 dead?

So i was cruising the Ford website looking at all the models of the new trucks. Theres no more FX4? i knew they killed it in the ranger but i didnt know they killed it in the 150-450. Im sad to see it go, but... does this mean the new "offroad package" for all the trucks will be the raptor? cause that would be awesome.. a ranger raptor..even sounds cool. hopefully in a couple weeks i can give a good solid first hand review of the raptor as my room mate is gonna trade in his german car for a raptor... i hope the raptor is the next in line of the FX4s
edit: upon closer inspection, FX4 is still alive in the f150, but not anything else

Yup FX4 = dead for 2010. Also the 7 ft. box is only available for fleet trucks. But AC is now standard!!!

its good to hear that a/c is standard but the FX4 was an icon for not just the ranger but all ford pick-ups and hopefully ford replacs it with another off-road package that is just a good and offers good value

I would imagine Ford would have to replace it with something. So many FX4's have been sold so you know it was a money maker.

What they should do is make 4 doors standard on the supercabs because a 2 door supercab is useless.

I agree. Any supercab should be a 4 door.

The FX4 Off Road also came with 31x10.50R15's on 15x7 Alcoa's optional. main differences were the shocks, # of skids, axle and interior.

+76. Even though there's still been times where I've still had to move the seat forward to put stuff in the back, there's still no excuse not to have 4 doors.
