STX = 4x2 only? I thought the old (~genII era) STX was a badass 4x4 package. I remember someone wheeling one pretty hard when I was in HS.. Doesn't sound like the package adds anything other than a few trim items.. Disapointing..

It says ford makes lowering coils for it, so it's prolly coil spring suspension on an otherwise edge-like ranger with a few styling differences.. Sounds pretty cool though, I'd trade up for it!

Anybody notice the picture? A 2003 grille with that FRPP body kit fascia. Other than that, I don't know what really makes it different.

Yea I'm kinda disappointed they gave it the STX name if it's a street truck. I think it looks pretty slick and sounds like ford wants to get into the customization scene with it, I just don't see why they're giving it the STX name.

I like it. I wonder if it'll be available in Canada....

Anyone know the link for the Ford Performance Parts site, as they mentioned it a few times about the add-ons you could get for the STX.

Here's the site. I've only found the Ranger lowering parts on it, no body kits for it though. I have the new 2005 catalog as well, no ranger body parts, and no ranger whipple supercharger. Of course, I bet if you called them or your local ford dealer up, they would have a listing.

http://www.fordracingparts.com/home/home.asp

They have a lot of stuff listed as coming soon:
Wheel packages, styling kits, and performance packages.
SO, that means they're coming, but no part #'s as of yet.

I heard this floating around before in the past. I like the idea of another 'Street' Ranger since the Splash is gone. If you all remember back, the EDGE was originally the 'replacement' for the Splash, but it more or less turned into the 4x4 mongrel of Ranger's with the 4x4 suspension and 2wd. Later 4x4 became available, IIRC.

They need to bring back the Splash-Type Ranger's to compete back in this market.

Come on Ford, do what you did in the Mid to late 90's with the Splash! Give us the damn 4.0 SOHC and a stick with the standard cab Flare-Side!

its on a 4x2 xl/xlt suspension....

start 04 all the edges, 4x4s, and 4x2 have the same front end, no special hoods or grilles (besides different colors)

Did you guys see this part
"Want to give more power to the standard 3.0-liter V-6? That's easy. Just install the Ranger Whipple Supercharger. Available through Ford Racing Performance Parts, this kit creates a super-charged engine achieving 230 hp at 5,400 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 rpm. It is an easy-to-install system that fits under the hood with no permanent modifications to the vehicle and no wiring. "

I wonder if it comes from Ford is it covered under warrenty ? I doubt it but I don't know
