Looks like a 2003 FX4 Base... 4.10 limited slip gear ratio, #1 torsion bars. Basically a xlt 4x4 with fx4 stickers lol. No such thing as a "monster energy FX4" just ebay stickers and some aftermarket parts added to it. Looks good though.

Get better pics please. The hood looks like a 1 piece glass. Get a pic of the door tag and we can tell you more. Looks like a nice truck though whats the specs? (trans, miliage etc...)

Just some aftermarket parts and some upgraded stuff from newer rangers like the badges and mirrors. I'm guessing they had bigger tires on there based on those flares

Looks like you have an Optima battery too which are really nice.

I would clean the frame parts on that truck and then coat it with a rubberized coating to protect it from any further rust.

Well to answer 1 of your questions. Yes it looks to have some kind of lift judging from the wheel gap. Better pictures would really help.

Yeah, it has a 3" body lift, judging by the frame to body gap and the 3" ground extension bracket on the firewall above the engine.
