<b>2002 Ranger FX4</b><br /> The Ranger reached the pinnacle of its factory four-wheeling prowess in 2002 with the advent of the FX4 package. Trail function was enhanced by a heavy-duty spring package combined with Bilstein shocks, forged Alcoa wheels, 31x10.50-15 BFG T-A KO tires, beefy skidplates and tow hooks. The rear axle was upgraded from 28 to 31 splines, the axle tube diameters increased from 2.75 to 3.25 inches, and a Torsen limited-slip was included with 4.10:1 gears. Special colors and interior features completed the package. This array of components became the FX4 Level II. According to Ford, 17,971 Level IIs were built through 2007 (including the ’02), and 45,172 of the Off Roads were built from 2003-2009. The Level IIs are a potential future collectable.
