Default FX4 or XLT?

Im looking to get a newer ranger 4.0 4x4 in the next 6 to 8 months. What are the differences , if any, between the fx4 and the xlt? Im also looking to do a lift for it but not sure how much or what kind, ultimately I want 33 inch tires. Will 33's need a transmission re-gearing? Any kind of input would be great!!!

The base FX4 is the same as an XLT. There isn't an option you can't get on an XLT that you can't get on a FX4.

Now when you step up to a FX4 Level II, then you get more goodies.


Remember, the '09+ Ranger's don't have the Level II, but the parts that came standard on earlier FX4 Level II's are options.
