In fact alot of guys try to argue with me about it being 4WD and I just open the door and say it is huh? and ask them if they see 2 shift levers, and ask them if they see manual locking front hubs. They shut up real quick too. Of course those guys are diehard dimer fans. That argument was also started by my car insurance man too. I like you guys. You guys and gals keep me on the strait and narrow and also keep me from doing something stupid to my truck and ruining it. Which I damn sure don't want to do. Pretty much just your basic mods like exhaust, and air intake (K&N O.E.M replacement air filter) is all that I have done to it. But with you guys and gals helping me out I should enjoy truck more, because god knows I've more than earned this privelage of driving a brand new truck for the first time in my life and I'm 33 years old to boot. Pretty much I just want a lighter version of the truck than what I have now with a basic small block V8 in it. 2 barrel carbed motor if you're wondering.
the 04 edges never came with twin sticks correct em if im wrong but that was the fx4 before 03 right? The new ones just have the little switch.

^^you sir, are correct.

02 Fx4 Off Road and 03 Fx4 Level 2, if equipped w/ manual trans, they got the manual transfer case. No manual hubs though.

Yes and no. The switch you're talking about was in the F150's and up not in the rangers until Late of 04. Late 04 and up has the switch you're talikng about. Plus mine is not 4WD just set up for the components for it. I could be wrong so don't hold me to that. I guess it really depends on what model you have etc.

DUH, no kidding. 4wd meant an automatic trans up until 2004 because of that. And Ford wasn't the first to use the push button 4WD either. GM was. Ford was a little behind them by a couple of years trying to out do GM on their quality and they succeeded. Ford has alway had superior drivetrain components you just had to wait a little longer to get them. Damn Shane you think I didn't know that. The twin stick is still in use by the way. Just look at the 2008 F250 5.4 liter with 4WD manual transmission.
