Narrowing down the packages with my dealer on available Rangers. He has located 3 in the surrounding area. They are all XLT 301A, trailer tow, and remote start (my requirements min) but other varying stuff like Adaptive Cruise and type of floor mats. The 3 units in play...Magnetic with FX4, Blue with FX4, and Black 4x4 with Locking Diff. Now it seems that 90% of the *street* benefits of the 4x4 system (mostly snow around these parts) are covered with just the base 4x4, and probably 100% with the locker (creeping along slow through deep mud, ruts, and snow piles). However, my goal is to *eventually* use this on the trail as well so how important are the FX4 electronics for trail driving and maybe a 'Jeep trail' in say Canyon Lands NP? The cost of the FX4 is not a big issue really as the locker is already $400 and included in the FX4 for only $800 more. But....I keep reading here that the FX4 is not so good on the street where this truck would be used pretty much 100% of the time for the next 3 years. So, opt for something that may degrade ride 100% of the time for additional capability someday? Ixnay on the 'buy one with an FX4 when you are ready to explore Moab' suggestion; my last truck was a 1999 and it still is used daily within the family! LOL...yea, stuff stays around here a long time. So, how bad is the FX4 on the street compared to the base 4x4, and/or how much more capability is there in the modes that come along with the FX4 over having the core hardware with the 4x4 and the rear locker? Those of you that opted for the FX4 for mostly street use, how is the overall ride? Bouncy? Harsh? Too soft?
