Whats the Difference

I've loved rangers for as long as I can remember, I bought my first one in June, What is the difference between the edge and the fx4?

Edge has color keyed bumpers and rubber floor mats. Also doesn't have some of the things like skid plates, nice shift *** (if manual), etc. Sometimes the rear end is different too (31 spline IIRC)

FX4 LII has:
4.11 gears
31 spline axle
31" tires
skid plates
bilstein shocks
tow hooks.

I don't know anything about Edges.

The 4x4 Edge has 4.10 gears and tow hooks also. It also has color matched bumpers.

The L2 is a different ball of wax compared to the FX4.

Also ford does not have a 4.11 gear ratio.

I was looking at Ford's website about a year ago and they said w/ a LII, you had the option of 4.56 gears... they came w/ 31x10.50 all terrains on alcoa rims also...

An FX4 is on the XLT platform. It just has stuff like the skid plates that the regular XLT doesn't. At least this is true for the 03 model year. I dunno much about the 04+ and don't care to =]

I guess no one has ever noticed that or taken them up on it. B/c that would be stupid with 31's.
