i looked at a 98 about 5 years ago and it had 4 doors. it was actually a nice truck. xlt, 4wd, some kind of soft forest green colour, flareside bed. the rims were the ones that had a ton of small teardrops in them. i think they wanted $15k for it.

To be specific....

The only model that comes standard with 4drs is the Fx4 Level 2 or the 08/09 Fx4...which ever year they cut down to one Fx4 model.

Just because it is not common, doesnt mean its not standard. Every time I have to go into the back of my truck for something, I curse the original owners for not getting one with 4 doors.

I think different things were standard on different models. The regular Edges might have been 2 door standard, with the Edge Plus came with power items standard and 4 doors. Then FX4s being 4 doors.

And why not...

2dr's have openable quarter windows(i think all do, but dont quote me)....all 4drs have fixed quarter windows. supposedly 4drs was optional with opening quarter windows in '98/99ish...but no one has seen one.
