2002 FX4 Off Road and 2003 FX4 Level II with manual t-case and manual transmission:

Silver bezel
1L5Z-7210-AD superseded to 1L5Z-7277-AE

Transfer case leather shifter boot
2L5Z-7277-AD

5 SPD leather shifter boot
2L5Z-7277-AC

2002~2003 Level II lower floor plate/diaphragm for twin sticks (fits into the trans tunnel under the carpet)
2L5Z-7479-AB

All of these parts are discontinued but you may be able to have your dealer's parts department find them at some other dealer in the U.S. using the Ford parts locator service. There are also a couple of obsolete parts warehouses in the U. S. that buy up the excess obsolete Ford parts and sell them until they're gone. These should also be accessible via the locator. Be prepared for sticker shock because these are expensive pieces.

You can try junkyards but these parts were only made for 2 model years and represent only about 1% of Ranger sales for those years.

Good luck.

It's through your Ford dealer. You can't access it.

I don't know but they would be interchangeable if you could find either one. Unfortunately, both are obsolete parts and no Ford warehouse or dealer has either part on the locator. I almost got the last one in the U.S. but missed it by a couple of days.

This sounds like the tiny and rare "Ranger Lariat" nameplate on the 1980-1981 Ranger Lariat radio bezels on F-series trucks. Aside from the ones that are still on trucks, there are just 7 New Old Stock "Ranger Lariat" script name plates left in the Unites States. Each of them are $80 not including shipping. The emblems are only about 5 inches long.

I managed to get lucky and found a complete Ranger Lariat radio bezel with the script in near perfect condition for $45 shipped. Had to have it shipped to me from Oklahoma.

Make sure you keep an eye on Ebay for ANY Level II truck that a junkyard is selling parts from. Look at all the pictures and if it's an 02-03 Level II, fire off an email or call to the junkyard and ask them if the truck still has the shift bezel and if it's a twin stick. Also ask for pictures for verification. This is how I found my aforementioned Ranger Lariat bezel. The junkyard was selling the cab in the ad, but I saw the Ranger Lariat emblems and fired off the email that later got me my bezel.

I ran into that for the longest time. It gets discouraging, but just keep at it man. I looked for that Ranger Lariat bezel for about 6 months before I found one. Man was it worth the wait too.
