The order guide says that "Trailer tow receiver (53L) standard on all series. Class III capability on units equipped with 4.0L V6 engine only" So i guess it has the tow package by default too?


BTW, X Plans and leftover new 2008 models are CHEAP......

Yes. as long as its NEW, you can use the X Plan for it. (certain models like Shelbys and SVT models dont always apply)

dont wanna spend that much on a used one, but its at a local dealer and i can probably wheel and deal. Are those the stock wheels? Sure are ugly but the truck itself is nice.

Well since you are not trying to pick between two anymore get a 4.0. I have a 4.0 with 4.10 gears and i can spin 35" maxxis bighorns. I am not sure about the 3.0 but the 4.0 is a HOSS and I love mine.

That's a Level 2! Get that! You'll be glad you did. Be like the rest of us and get the ultimate factory Ranger!

All that hype aside, if you're going to ever offroad, thats the truck you want.
The wheels are the stock alcoa wheels, you may not like them but they are very coveted and you can sell them no problem. What dealership is that at?

16k isnt all too bad for a Level 2, considering sticker for that truck was probably 27k. They apparently dont realize its a Level 2, as it seems to say nothing about it in the ad. I say try and see how low they'll go on it.

My understanding is that its about $250 or so above invoice price. Rebates and other incentives still apply with it though, so the discounts rack up pretty quick if you buy at the right time.

BUY IT! FX4 LII FTW!!!

Those are factory 15" Alcoas BTW.

You'd be nuts to pass that truck up. I'd give my left one for one of those.

I went to look at that Level II in person. It was a nice truck... but i know it sounds lame... I really couldnt warm up to the Sonic Blue with the chrome bumper look. I just wasnt feelin it. The wheels looked better in person. The pics made it look like it had major backspacing going on but they werent as 'flat' as they look in the pics.

After working with a dealer all week, Ive settled on buying a new one. Financing has been approved and im just waiting to see if they can get the one i chose in a dealer trade. Its a 2009 Sport with a 4.0L/Auto and a 3.55 Limited slip. Black, power package and a few other little things. IF They can get it, i will most likely have it tonight. If not, i have to wait till next week. With rebates and the X plan, the price for new was within $500 of the asking price of the used Level II.

edge has 31K
xlt has 41K
edge is a 3.0
Xlt is a 4.0
edge is an 05
xlt is a 06

so.. for just 10K more miles and a beefier engine and a truck thats only 3 years old, you'd spend $3,600 more than if you went with the edge thats 4 years old.

go with the Xlt.
