They're worth a couple hundred bucks. You'll be able to tell the FX4 manual cases cause they're the only manual cases with the tulip style front output flange.

Uhh, what?

They are worth whatever someone is willing to pay. $150-250 maybe a bit more to the right person.

Its not a Hurst shifter, Just a stock shifter without the boot and chromed.

Thanks for all of the info, I am a novice when it comes to the new Rangers and what they have or what shift lever(s) come with what so my questions may be a little off.

A guy has a manual T/C without any shifting mechanism and want to sell it along with a Rear Axle both from an FX4, the axle he is asking $400 for but the T/C he is up in the air with.

Before I make the offer I wanted to know the range on the pricing.

Thanks,

Keep in mind that the shift linkage for the FX4 manual case is SUPER hard to find.

Probably why he is hedging on it a little.

Nope. They're just fancy looking levers and ***** made by Ford.

that tcase with out a linkage is basically worthless. the shifter from ford if probably pretty expensive. if you can get the tcase for 50 i would say buy it then buy a new linkage from ford

If you are thinking of buying the fx4 axle and you plan on wheeling dont buy it. get an explorer axle. you will get the same thing but with disc brakes and an 1.5 inches wider. the fx4 31 spline 8.8 is a custom length axle shaft so if you would ever break or bend one you would have to get one from ford or have a hell of a time finding on at a junk yard. parts for the fx4 axle arent cheap. the explorer axles are dime a dozen and pretty cheap and just as strong.
