Default 4x4 vs Fx4

What makes a fx4 ranger so much (better) and more expensive than a standard 4x4 ranger????

bilstein heavy duty gas shocks, alcoa 8-hole wheels, stock 31 inch BFG A/Ts, stainless steel front tow hooks, skid plates under the engine/radiator, transfer case, and gas tank,
rear end = 4.10:1 ratio 31 spline torsen limited slip 8.8,
black interior, trim-specific bucket seats have a different material & design inserts AND lumbar adjustment

and I think the axles are rated at higher weight capacities, but I might wrong.

2002 FX4s are the same as 2003-2009 level IIs.
but you are right, I thought the op meant level II's .
as for the 2003-2009 FX4 non L II's , its the same as the 01 and older XLT off-road package.

edit: I think I lied about the level II's production run, I don't think they lasted until 2009.
but here's this:
