4x4 or not?

This truck is near me well sorta near me. I was looking around for 4.0 4x4 trucks being mine is only a 2wd. But this struck me as weird. I've never seen a ranger look like this if it's 4wd. What do you think?

hmm it very well could be a 4x4 becasue it has front tow hooks, but i dont see any 4x4 decals on the side though. it could be a miss print and be a 2wd xl

It sits like it's four wheel drive. I personally wouldn't get it because it is a bottom of the line(excluding 4.0 and 4wd) truck with no toys, it's just meant to be a work grade truck.

BUT its a perfect platform for a trail rig, why would you want a fancy truck to beat up?

It is an XL model. XL 4WDs only have functional upgrades since they are targeted at commercial and work truck buyers.

Why? XL 4WDs have the same bumpers, grilles, wheels, etc... as 2WD models. Ford doesn't have a reason to change anything on XL models.

This is a 4WD too...



(notice the t-bar)

8th digit is an ' E ' , Light Truck, E= V-6 4.0L EFI-SOHC .

R11 = ' R11 - Ranger standard cab 4x4 '

Very rare truck.. If it has a manual case and tranny.. I will be buying it tomorrow . Its 400lbs of cab weight and 250lbs of creature comfort Lighter. It has a *short* wheelbase with a LOT better visability.. That thing could make one awesome trail monger!
