im not talkin just skid plates and bilsteins. im talkin EVERTHING. as in newer motor(which i dont see happenin), all the interior, all the exterior trim, etc.

its just a trim package. hell he could make it a LII with alcoas, stainless hooks, and everything else. but its still just a trim package. you can make an XL into an XLT. or a STX.

read my last post. its just a trim. meaning more goodies. i dont think all the fx4s had the 31 spline anyways. just the level2s. i could be wrong though. but you can take any trim package and make it any other trim package. if you take a lightning motor and put it in a ranger, along with all the other features, whether it came from the factory as an XL,XLT,STX,etc., it will be a SVT

I think it's something you could argue until both sides are blue in the face really... if he wants to do it, great. I don't have to like it though, and I can say that I don't like it. That doesn't make him wrong, that doesn't make me wrong. As long as I'm not being a tool in how I say it, and he doesn't get to being a tool because I don't like it, everything's cool, and the world continues to turn. It's just whatever...

i didnt say all FX4's had 31 spline... 2002 FX4 do because there was no level II in 2002 an FX4 offroad was a level II back then in 2003+ all fx4 level II only came with 31 spline...

Yeah I'm gona go with a 3" BL, get some chevy drop shackles in the back, and a t-bar crank in the front. So I'll be sitting at like 5", get some 35s, new shocks, considering new traction bar, and some other stuff. Sorry to rile everyone up lol, and I would love to sell my truck, but its a 99 and i could probably get 6K if i'm lucky, and a used FX4 will run me bout 15 or 16K so:-/

I say do it just to make people more irritated. Its a win win. You get a Built-Up truck, and more people get drawn in to a silly argument. Except put Level II stickers on it to up the ante. :)

i agree. IMHO, i like the idea of going for the most you can to make it an fx4 (besides the engine, of course.) however, if it were me, i'd keep the 99 front clip.
