FX4 package

The 2011 trucks have 'hill decent control' included as part of the 'FX4' package. Was this part of the FX4 package before, or is this a new 2011 feature?

It's a similar setup to the 2010 F-150 but is new to the 2011 SD's.

So before the 2011 MY, the FX4 package was only Rancho shocks, skid plates, and decals?

I'd be more embarrassed to own an FX2 on the F150s... I wonder if you get a t-case skid plate when there's no t-case

If anything is worth the money in that package, it's the skid plates. The hill descent in the '11's isn't anything to get excited about, the shocks suck (I know Rancho, not your guys' fault, Ford sent you the specs, you just build 'em, but the rust issue isn't Ford's fault ), and the stickers, well, I peeled mine off a while back.

FX4 also gets locking rear diff now for the 2011's. I thought the Superduty was like the F-150 in respect to the FX4. In the f150, a FX4 is a whole trim of it's own

Seeing as my Lariat has skidplates, would I be wrong in putting FX4 stickers on it?

FX2 is a street truck (think Chevy 1500 SS without the power)

They remove the 2" block and put a 1" block, differen grille, front bumper gets a special valance and you get that nifty sticker on the bed

I dont know if it was Rangers or F150s, some something used to have an FX2 Offroad sticker. Maybe the new 150s are different.

Maybe it was custom, but I know I've seen one similar to this with my own eyes before.

It's not officially included in the FX4 but is a required option to get the FX4 (like four wheel drive, A/T tires, etc).

I know, I know, I'm nit picking..
