having the plow will put added stress on you steering components, ball joints inparticular, your CV joints might be a concern also.

yeah man, fx4 is the best package ever, mine is a level ii but, someone ran into the side of my truck (they ran a stoplight) and hit dead on the fx4 sticker, since they didnt have level ii anymore, they dont have the sticker, so they put on a regular fx4 offroad sticker on. and thanks for the info on the plow. alsoo you see those tires?

Since your Ranger is a 2002, I'm sure they replaced it with "FX4 Off Road" because that is what originally came on it. They didn't change the sticker to "FX4 Level II" until the year model 2003.

Your truck is definitely a 2002. The correct FX4 Off Road decals are on it now. The FX4 Level II decals were not introduced until 2003 model year. Someone changed them before you bought it.

The differences between the 2002 Off Road and the 2003 Level II are purely cosmetic, not functional:

Seat fabric
Radio surround color
Instrument cluster color
Bedside decals

he put it in.
for 2002 the rangers had these models
4x4
4x4 off road
fx4 off road

2003+ it changed to
4x4
fx4
fx4 level 2

the fx4 2003= 4x4 offroad in 2002
the fx4 level 2 in 2003= the fx4 off road in 2002 (minus a few visuals)

If it was assembled in December, 2002, then it would be a 2003 model. However, the interior in your pictures is 2002 FX4, not 2003 LII. Open the driver door and check the Cert Label for the build date and the model year. There will also be an emission sticker on the radiator bulkhead that gives the model year.

No production Ranger ever came with a 5.0L. Mine is a swap.
