Default I dont think this is an FX4 but....

...maybe I am wrong.

http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.js...e&rdpage=thumb

The rear bumper is jacked and the decals look like they are peeling off. XLT all the way as far as the interior goes. I hate when i see trucks like this advertised falsely! Unless I am wrong....

2007 FX4 Off Road and FX4 Level II both have plastic fender flares and 2-tone paint standard, so that truck is neither. It's an XLT with FX4 decals (complete with bubbles - check the close up).

Yeah i saw that and that rear bumper is not even the right bumper for that truck. shouldn't it be color matched? It looks more like an aftermarket older ranger bumper. I feel bad for the person that actually buys this as an FX4. If it was an FX4 I would think the price would be a little higher having that mileage.

Yes, the chrome rear bumper is wrong for any 2007. The chrome grille is right for 2007 XLT 4x4 but wrong for either of the 2007 FX4's - should be body color matched. Both FX4's also have the Power Equipment Group standard which this one does not.

It's definitely counterfeit and the replacement bumper ups the odds that it has been hit.

A quick VIN check says it's a 2007 Ranger Sport/XLT. Of course it also says it's a Supercab 2D which is wrong unless they changed that.

wouldn't that be something if these fools were making FX4 stickers and putting them on all the 4x4 rangers that come through their lot? What a bunch of homos

Ford specs say that all 2007 FX4 Off Road's, FX4 LII's and Sports came standard with wheel lip moldings. There's no delete option for the moldings on these models. So the only possiblility is a misbuild.

Maybe not. According to the dealer ordering procedure, my 2003 FX4 Level II is a Ranger XLT with option group 390A.

It's definitely a XLT ... It's another one of the XLT 4X4 5-speed manual Rangers without the Power Equipment Group. What's up with that anyway? I got a 2004 XLT like that, and now I'm goin through hell finding a in-dash wiring harness for my power windows and door locks.
