Nice pics! Is the cupholder on the floor (with what looks like the ashtray in it) an aftermarket one? I only have the two up in the center console.

Edit: OK - just looked at my own truck pics and saw I have a tray on the floor there, which wouldn't be there if I had a manual. I might just have to do something about that, as I could use more cup holders.

Thanks

The two on the floor (by shifter) are cupholders. And the ashtray there is a stock item not an option on FX4(smokers package / lighter /ashtray). There are the two cupholders in the console as well (in the console picture there you see a cheapy dollar store ashtray). As I don't wan't to use the original for butts. I use it for nick nacks (small stuff). Ya your right the automatic version replaces the cupholders with a tray.

You've got a real nice machine there, I kinda wish my fender flares weren't painted like yours. Less scratches going on while bush wackin into the hunt camps and fishin holes.

Cheers: Jeff

I'd be looking to buy a new Ranger if they still had new models with LSD, but without it I'll keep my '02 FX4 going for a few more years. When it goes, guess I'll be looking at somebody else's compact truck.

In Canada there is NO L/S option on absolutly any of the Ranger models. Or I'd have it for sure. All models now come with the AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control). Which is just OK I geuss, at least you have the option of turning it off, if you'd like. Which I do most of the time. Why it's eliminated the L/S option I don't know?

My preferance of course would be to have the L/S option. But for what ever reason it looks like Ford is going for the safety aspect of things, to push sales maybe. As apposed to real functionality.

Oh well I'm not going to get rid of my 2010 FX4 because of it though. I geuss I'll just have to grin and bare it! It's really not all that bad. Just a real bummer.

The price differential in Canada on a new 2010 FX4 OR a 2007 FX4 with 40,000 to 60,000 km is around $2000 less for used (less warrenty, more milage, more age). Just made no sense to buy a used one to get L/S. So here I am with a new one.

Cheers Jeff

Pics confirmed my thoughts. 2010 Fx4 = 2009 Sport w/ Fx4 sticker and painted "H-bar" grille. lol.


I noticed a 2010 Sport US spec Ranger ad on craigslist....had the same grille as 06-07 sports and 06+ Fx4's.... Makes me wonder if they ditched the "STX/Sport" grille all together...


Fwiw, ford isn't really going the safety route so much, more like US federal safety standards....2010 all vehicles under a certain GVWR are required to have curtain airbags and trucks are required to have an anti-roll system. I'm willing to bet the same is true for ALL NA Rangers.

I'd say your right about the federal (and Povincial / CND) safety standards having to do with implementing AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control) and side air bags across NA.

Why is this eliminating the L/S option (or is it?), I don't know? Or is it something else completly different? Just flat out drop this option maybe? This is puzzling.

Bring back L/S I say! Why not? don't know?

At least we have the 4:10 gear option still (when it comes to Diff options).

Cheers Jeff

I've never had L/S, i have had zero problems with my open 4.10 diff in sand or snow, so i really dont see a problem with "not" having it

dixie_boysles Never said there was a problem with not having L/S. It's just a nice to have if possible. Would if I could have.

Burr I have a 2010 FX4 dude! lolo. And your absolutly right we most certainly don't stink. L/S is not an option for any 2010 Ranger models. FX4 Only in CND ya say! / sorry U.S.A. no FX4 sticker for you lololo.

Cheers
