That means you got the 31 spline Torsen 8.8 since it is a '02.

looks good!

The '02 FX4 Off Road is equivalant with the '03+ FX4 Level II's. They have the 8.8 31 spline Torsen rear end. If you would have gotten a manual transmission, you would have got the chrome Level II shifter!

First thing you HAVE to do is rip off those step bars.

Then crank the t-bars and tint the front windows.

Good looking truck.
