I believe the only difference between a Sport and FX4 are skid plates and upgraded suspension. Both IMO are not worth it. I looked for a 17' FX4 and didn't see the option on Ford's website.

Skid plates, shocks, hill descent control, locking rear end, 36 gal fuel tank...

My 2016 F150 is a Lariat supercab with the FX4 package.
It's OK off road, but the 145" wheelbase is a pain. I think my old Ford Ranger (shorter wheelbase) had better clearance on bouldery roads...

My sport has all of those things minus the hdc, skid plate and shocks. The tank and locking rear end are stand alone options also.

They would perform exactly the same off road. Anywhere one could go, the other could go as well.

Yep, not sure why it's so hard to understand.. I guess folks got used to the FX being an trim level with different appearance from other trims.
