Welcome from NC and STL's suggestion is great but if no FX4 Level II's around the FX4 off road would be next best!

My budget is about 3-4k i suspect. I have an insurance settlement coming and selling two Ramchargers and such, I'm new to Rangers, but I know what a Off road Fx4 is but can you explain what a level II is?

Level II's have a few more upgrades on top of the FX4 off road package, like a torsion diff, bilsten shocks, more skid plates, different tow hooks, alcoa wheels. I agree with STL as well but I don't there was an fx4 level II in 03, They came with the same parts as a level II but they never had a FX4 offroad package, when they added that in 03 or 04 the previous FX4 became the Level II package.
And welcome!
