Lariat vs. FX4 (04-08)

Which is the better package and why? I'm talking the current style (04-08)

I was looking around on other sites for answers to this question and both sides seem to be even..some people prefer the FX4 and the way it looks with the carbon fiber interior, etc.. and other people prefer the Lariat package with the chrome bumpers, leather interior, heated seats, and they said it was a smoother ride due to the suspension. I've never really researched the lariat package too much because I've always liked the FX4.

What are your opinions?

since i've never owned either, i'm gonna guess and say the fx4 for the off road package. it would seem to suit me better.

FX4 with Plus Package VS Lariat
FX4 has skid plates and upgraded shocks
Lariat has painted fender flares and upgraded gauge package
Other than that, no difference between the 2
Basic FX4 VS Plus FX4
Basic has manual heat control, no power heated seats and 18" rims are standard
Plus has all above upgraded

so basically if you can find a Lariat and then another truck with the FX4 Plus package, it all comes down to personal preference?

I would take the FX4 over the lariat just because of the interior carbon fibre look, but im younger, i've ridden in both and they are both definitely not lacking on any type of style whatsoever.

Like White Pearl said, its just a preference.

I'd take FX4 over Lariat. Simply because of the carbon fiber over wood grain.

How does it ride? I read that because it has the off-road shocks it's not as smooth of a ride as the Lariat....
