Add the following:
Bilstein Shocks
Front skid plate
Alcoa wheels
31x10.5 BFG AT's
Extend the breather lines (so i've heard)
Torsen Limited Slip
31 spline 8.8 axles.
Chrome tow hooks in front

Those are the differences I know of between an FX4 and a Level 2 from the Factory.

You have a 28 spline axle, with a clutch pack LS. There's two varieties of the 8.8

31 spline is stronger, Torsen is gear driven, so in theory theres nothing to wear out.

Not trying to **** in your cheerios, just lettin ya know.

I tried to get a regular FX4 when I got my truck, but they had my Level 2 and I got a better deal on it.

I didnt learn all the extras I got until a few months later.

Yeah, all the things I listed only come on L2's.

He said he has a regular FX4 and wanted to know what to do to make it a L2. I said to add the following.

I think all FX4's have the same gauge cluster. I may be wrong I've only been in another Level 2.

And yes, cant forget the seats...I know I love mine. Black with red inserts.

FX4 regulars have the tcase and gas skid already. Level 2 has the front skid.

Oh geeze I mentioned the Torsen.

I listed the differences between a LEVEL ONE FX4 and a LEVEL TWO FX4.
AFAIK BOTH HAVE 4.10's.

'02 had the same black gauges as the rest of the ranger models.
'03 has the same silver gauges as the rest of the XLT ranger models.
'04+ has black with silver trim around the gauges. Regular FX4 and all the other models got black with black trim rings.

Sorry Trevor... I can only do so much from this far away.... maybe you could get your girl to do an exchange program for me? I'll send her money and she can go take the kid to dinner once a week or something (and I don't mean any of the sick things your horndogs are thinking about!!). haha
