    If I root my Droid X will I loose my current apps and data?, also do I have to install a new rom? or can i just use the SU function and be ok? and if I dont flash a new rom is there any reason to root?

    Just rooting by itself won't cause you to lose anything, but if you flash a custom ROM then you'll have to do a data wipe which will erase all your current apps and data. Yes, you can root stock MotoBlur GB and use root apps without using a custom ROM. If you don't flash a custom ROM there's still plenty of reason to root; you'll be able to use tools like Android Overclock, remove bloatware and speed up your system just using stock rooted GB.
