Default Question: Is this really an FX4?

Hey guys,

So I'm thinking about getting rid of my 1991 and upgrading to the last gen of Ranger. Anyway, looking at this on craigslist, I have suspicions that they slapped an fx4 sticker on the side. 60/40 bench? The fx4 cluster is supposed to have silver rings around each gauge too right?

http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/rd...636586955.html

What do you think?

I believe all 2008 FX4's were two-tone.

Haha I knew it! As soon as I saw the bench I wtf'ed in my head. Funny thing is I want a fx4 with the 60/40 bench lol. toss up between getting a 2011 fx4 (for the traction control for winter driving) and a earlier model for the manual transfer case though harder to come by I know Probably go for a 2011 and swap the buckets and console out for a 60/40.

This is why I dislike when people put FX4 or FX2 stickers on non FX4 trucks and regular 4x2 trucks. or people who put on those stupid "police Interceptor" badges.

Yeah another thing to think about: I have an 09 and I love my FX4 leather, blacked gauges, axle console, etc, the one big advantage of a newer truck, the 2010 and 2011 rangers have 4 wheel disc brakes. For me this would be a more valuable option than console or seats, just something to think about. I've had some issues with my drums whih is why I really like the discs.

It's a sport,, check underneath for splash guards.

It's not even an XLT, aren't FX-4's supposed to be under the XLT trim? What a fucking rat dealership! Who does this shit!
