How many miles are on the truck? Crazy you've had so many issues. I also have a 13' FX4 5.0 and haven't had a single issue that you've run into and I'm just about to hit 150k.

97K KM...so about 60K miles. Yes, it definitely was unexpected to have the issues I've had. She seems to be all good now and I'm happy to have my extended warranty for 4 more years and it paid for itself. It was a tough winter for her but I still really enjoy this truck and knowing I have a bunch of new parts in it lol.

I hope no one?? It was the first thing to get trashed when I brought it home. I find the stickers clash pretty badly. On my old truck Id design different stickers for that back section. I got lazy and just ordered FX4 only lol. Once I care to Ill make custom ones. I have my own vinyl cutter.

I can't imagine what comes with the Fx4 package that is worth it. Dash bling ? Skid plates eating into payload ? 3.55 ratio gearing it would likely come with anyhow. Rear locker ? I got the 3.55 locker and wanted the 3.73. The gears, locker, and skid plates would be cheaper optioned without the package. What's the draw ?

The locking 3.55 gears as a stand alone option cost about half as much as the full FX4. So hill descent, different shocks, skid plates, floor liners for the other $500 or so of MSRP/sticker

(FX4 includes locking 3.31 or 3.55 depending on engine)

Edit: new Trucks. Used is totally different, selection is more limited and trims and packages vary significantly over the generations

Aesthetics? I had an XLT that I spent a lot of time and money trying to turn into the looks of an FX4. I don't like chrome. I like black leather interior. The FX4 gave me all the options and looks that I wanted and provides the functionality I need to pull my travel trailer.

Its a wonderful thing that we can all find what we want in a truck and be happy with it as we all value different things. Sometimes budget is a major factor as well. Could I buy new with the options I want? Probably not so this is a great compromise. Does not hurt that I like the looks of that generation much more than those after.

I'm assuming you are enjoying your XLT as much as I enjoy my FX4!
