"X" is what was the "XZ": upper with a standard Bravo lower with DWP.

BAM site has an excellent breakdown of the differences.

Dont ask me what any of that means, I just pulled it off a web site I had seen.......... I think the X drive was made for use with diesel motors and is a little beefier than the regular Bravo 1.
