Default Re: Ford Canda still showing FX4 availible..unfair!

I just picked up my 2011 Ranger FX4 on Friday and after driving it over the weekend, I feel that it rides lower than my previous 2003 Ranger FX4. My neighbour down the street has a 2009 Ranger Sport 4X4 and it seems to be the same height as my 2011 FX4, so I guess they are the same truck other than the FX4 appearance and power options. The Sport has its own 16" rims and 255/R70x16 tires and the FX4 has its own (different) 16" rims and the same 255/R70x16 tires.

I would like to add a 3" body lift at some later date.

I believe Canada's Fx4 is just a glorified Sport with different decals...

In 2010, there was the XL and XLT.

The Sport and FX4 are just equipment groups, like GM's SS models on cobalts.

I found some old specs. on a 2003 Ranger FX4 "Level II" and it said that the Overall Height was 68.75 inches. I measured my 2011 FX4 "Off Road" at 67.5 inches. That's only 1.25" difference. Could have sworn that it would be more. Still plan on a 3" body lift.

4:10 axle ratio only option on FX4. You can otherwise build a Sport to FX4 specs (as 4.10 as $400 option) but without the decal.
