2003 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT FX4 Level II 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Outstanding initial build quality. Tight, perfect paint, no sqeaks or Rattles. Everything screwed together very well. Cabin layout is near perfect and well designed. Switchgear is tactile and solid. 4.0L V6 has plenty of power and torque. BFG All Terrain KO 10.5X31X15's are superb in the snow. Torsen limited slip is a definite improvement over a standard Limited Slip in the snow. Above tires, wheels and rear are specific to the FX4- Level II package. I have the 5 speed Automatic, which was not listed as an option here on the review site.

Best Features

Excellent interior design, excellent exterior looks. Yes, it's been around a while but it's hard to improve on near perfection, and change for the sake of change is stupid. FX4-Level II brings truly usefull additions instead of just stickers and big tires,like on some other trucks.

Worst Features

Ford should have NEVER de-contented the Sport Bucket Seats. The last real year for good seats was 1996, I believe. Limited Interior/Exterior color choices with the FX4-Level II package. Limited option packages. It's all or nothing (390A package or none).
