- Gauge Cluster

- Timing Chain Rattle
Also, are the seats interchangable with the new seats with inserts? And can the gauges be swapped out for another type?
'02 Fx4 = Black or Tan interior(dash, seats, headliner, doors, carpet, etc.)
'03 Fx4L2 = Black interior(dash, seats, headliner, doors, carpet, etc.)
Fx4 seats have extra bolstering on the sides and have manual lumbar.
'02 Fx4 = seat upholstery a funky spirily marker made print stuff...
'03 Fx4L2 = Black w/ either blue or red insert...(seats from '03 Fx4L2 in my truck...)
'02 Fx4 = Black gauges(same as any other '02 and older ranger) and Black radio bezel....
Yea, gauges on '03 and older rangers can be swapped out very easily to even the explorer white faced gauges.
'03 Fx4L2 = Silver gauges(just like any other '03 XLT) and Silver radio bezel(note seats)...
Here's a comparison to '02 and older door panels, and '03 and newer door panels....just imagine them being all black.
Thingy that's above the armrest: '02 and older = pinholed vinyl(on right). '03+ = Black carpeted(on left)...(armrest itself in all fx4's are black.)
Sticker on back:
'02 Fx4...(says "FX4 OFF ROAD") Can't find any pics. lol.
'03 Level 2...(If it's an '03 and says FX4 OFF ROAD, then it's a Base FX4. '03 FX4OR replaces the '02 4x4OR pkg)
Something worth noting....
'02 Fx4 AND '03 Level 2's get BLACK flares, BLACK valence, and BLACK rear bumper cover...comparison of '02 Fx4 vs. '02 XLT...
