The Fx4 Off-Road package is an add-on option for drivers who want a vehicle that is a little more rugged. Let’s get into the features that come with the Fx4 Off-Road package below.
Fx4 Off-Road Package Features
This package can be added onto any 4x4 truck unless you have a 3.5L Ti-VCT engine. All of these features provide extra sturdiness to your F-150 and Super Duty truck.
Here are the features that come with the package for the F-150
- Electronic-locking rear axle
- Hill descent control
- Off-road tuned front shock absorbers
- Skid plates on fuel tank, transfer case, and front differential
- Fx4 off-road box decals
For the Super Duty trucks:
- Hill descent control
- Rancho front and rear shocks
- Transfer case and fuel tank skid plates
- FX4 off-road box
The electronic locking differential is a device housed in the rear axle that allows both rear wheels to turn at the same speed. The electronic locking differential can provide additional traction should your vehicle become stuck. You can activate the differential electronically and shift it on the fly controller within the differential operating speed range. The differential is for use in mud, rocks, sand, or any off-road condition where you need maximum traction. It is not for use on dry pavement.
The hill descent control system allows your F150 to maintain a controlled descent by maintaining a set low speed over rough and slippery declines. Hill descent control works like an adaptive cruise control for off-roading, which is pretty cool.
Our off-road shock absorbers help dampen impact and vibration. The shock absorbers that come with this package are tuned for the off-road lifestyle. This lets your truck be on any terrain with ease.
Skid plates are placed on your fuel tank, transfer case, and the front differential to prevent damage to these parts of your vehicle. The Fx4 decal is like a badge of honor and lets people know that your truck is Built Ford Tough.
