yeah yeah yeah....sometimes I forget those type of things. lol. 1 year only things such as those seats. I forgot about the LII's getting longer breather tubes too.

many more threads will be made. Let me try to simplify, BUT not as exact as shane.

02 FX4s are actually LVL 2s(they're just the first package before lvl 2 existed so its how it worked out.
03-04(at least 04, maybe a bit further) the FX4s have the 4.0 and tracloc, they dont have 31 spline or gayass chrome tow hooks and they dont have torsens.

I think it's important to point out though that regular FX4s do have the dark interior. I was playing around with my GOPRO HD widescreen camera and here's a pic showing an FX4 interior. Carpet and roof are grey, everything else is quite black. If i remember correctly Lvl 2s have colormatched seats?

red_AK: I'd let people stick to fx4wannabe's facts, some of yours are highly misleading that interior you have is the basic interior that they all get, level2's have an entirely black interior.. 0 gray

also fx4's never had "chrome" tow hooks, there stainless and there's nothing gay about stainless steel

Get under the truck and look at the diff. Look around the 10-bolt cover and find the metal tag. It has numbers and stuff on it. If it has an L between 4:10. Looks like this

"4L10 7.5 &^$*%"

If there is an L you has Limited Slip.

your truck is just an xlt, there was no non fx4 "offroad" model as 2003, i could be wrong though

Technically...that's what they did....


They've still got the 4x4's, but the Fx4 is it's own unique optional model with other neat goodies tossed in.

No the 4x4 Off Road was only 98-02. Your 04 had 3 4x4 package options: XLT 4x4, FX4 Off Road, FX4 Off Road Level II.

And '03 Fx4 Level 2, if you want the twin sticks.

Honestly though I prefered the auto. twice the tiwing capacity and tuner really wakes it up.

Yes, with the exception of a few very rare tan interior black trucks. I have only seen one in photos and that was an '02 it even had the ugly marbling inserts.

The FX4 LII tow hooks maybe gayass but they are not chrome. They are stainless steel.
