if you have the manual, i would highly advise against a bodylift, haha. I had one and i had a hell of a time getting my t-case shifter right. The boot/ shifter plate is really tight once you put the BL on. After i took mine out, it cost me 600 to replace the floor plate, bezel, boots and some other odds and ends. If you have the auto then you dont have any of those headaches to worry about.

that thing is soo clean. crank up your bars and some 32s it woudl look great.

I thought only the level II came with the torsen limited slip and 31 spline 8.8 rear end. You might want to get the axle code of the rear and make sure its really got what you think it does.

a 2002 FX4 is a level II.. level II didnt come out till 2003..

in 2002 there was only FX4 and "4x4 offroad"

in 2003 the "4x4 Offroad" became FX4 Offroad and the FX4 became FX4 level II...

understand?

You'll love the FX4 man. I love mine!

So, is it an auto or a twin stick?

What month was it built? You may wanna check that as to not have the incident I had with my 02 FX4. My Torsen blew up on me, as they were faulty from the factory the first few months of the 02 model year. Ford only chose to recall the manyal transmissions, as there aren't as many manuals as autos, but the company that makes the Torsen (can't remember who, possibly just Torsen) recalled all of them. I just replaced it with a 31 spline Trac Loc LSD for an 8.8 from Ford Racing. I'll be loosing that here in the next few weeks and putting my Aussie Locker in that was originally for my Bronco. I just need an open carrier first.

I will try to get the month tomorrow. It works great and only has 70,000 miles on it. It was owned by some people that lived in the city and never drove it. They drove it once a month if that and just didnt need a 4wd truck. It seems like brand new and i love it.
