Hrmph... learn something new every day. I always thought the FX4 package in even 02-03 included LS, skid plates, bilstiens, etc. Good to know.

GaNole, I'm betting one of your first mods is a LS swap eh?

Not even Bilsteins. At one time they used Ranchos, but that stopped with the 04. You can even get 3.55s on a FX4. A lot depended upon what size tires were ordered as to whether you got 3.55 or 3.73.

My 02 FX4 has a 3.55 LS and Rancho shocks. All FX4s get skid plates.
