Question What does "off-road" mean?

This question is about trim packages/equipment options.

Some of our trucks have decals on the box that read "4x4 Off-Road" and others that are just "4x4". There may be others; I haven't noticed.

Do these decals distinguish anything specific about the options?

Well , 4x4 is just 4 wheel drive usually. I have an FX-4 which is 4 wheel drive with rancho shocks, and skid plates. That's one thing I know for sure. Not sure about much else on the 4x4 model or 4x4 off road one

The rancho shocks arent rancho shocks. Just rancho stickers on ford shocks

But yeah shocks and skid plates are the only difference

It means you get it near mud you place around 8K into the suck. They sink like Josh's sub.

Sorry but I traded my Wrangler in for my rig and know what 4x4 means.

ETA - oh but after my buddies put my rig back together and we took her for a "spin" - he spun all 4 tires on a launch. THAT is what 4x4 means on MY rig.

4x4 means it has 4 wheel drive, 4x4 off road is 4 wheel drive with skid plates and fx4 is 4 wheel drive with skid plates and "rancho" shocks. In some years FX4 was an actual trim level on the truck not just an option. They had color matched bumpers and grilles as well.

Its funny cause mine has the skids but only said 4x4 when i bought it. I agree, I thought the "offroad" meant it came with the skid plates.
