Default found a new 2007 level II

A week or so back I posted that I was looking for a 2007 FX4 level II because they quit making them in 2008... looked all over the country, then kinda changed my mind on dropping that kind of cash on a truck I really didn't need.

Fast forward to today, poking through dealer inventory and lo and behold, a 2007 white FX4 level II, brand new shows up at a dealer in Houston. Must have been on a truck or something because no one else could find it last week.

Anyway, if anyone else wants possibly the last remaining new FX4 level II on the planet, it is at mac haik Ford in houston.

For the right money I'll deliver it to you because its just the kinda guy I am... of course it may show up a little muddy.

FYI, The 08 FX4's are the same as the 07 level II's except the rims and tires.

I was kinda wondering why some people were looking for actual Level II's because you can now get the Torsen Limited slip as an option on the Level I's. Never thought about it like that. Now I wish I had a Level II.....

It's optional, a regular L/S is standard. Not likely to find an 08 on the dealer's lot with a Torsen though.

www.fordvehicles.com, select Trucks, then Ranger, then Build And Price. It tells me that a limited-slip is standard and the Torsen is a $250 option. Not to say that they don't sometimes change things later.

Ah, I see. I'm looking at the Canadian Ford website. It lists the Torsen as standard in the FX4.

http://www.ford.ca/main/default.asp?...s&model=Ranger

Make sure you select 08 model.
I can confirm that I did not specify that diff when I ordered my truck. Maybe different in Canada ???
