Default Oregon, new to rangers

So I'm considering buying a 2010 or 2011 ranger sport 4wd. I have heard that the FX4 models are bad to take in water due to breather vents on the diff. Is this a good year for the ranger and do they make grill guards and bull bars. How reliable are the new ones and how much of a lift can you do? 2 1/4?

I was also curious as to the push button on the fly 4wd? how reliable is it and does it run in a true 4wd or...

Welcome to FRF
The breather vent on the diff is the same for all rangers. If it is not tampered with there should be no problem unless you go into water that reaches the bottom of the bed.

2 1/4 lift never even heard of that amount of lift. 3" bodylift $200.oo or you would have to do a suspension lift which is 1000+
