Payload Package 2 was a standalone option that was available on your truck when new. Whether he realized it or not, the original purchaser paid extra for it. On a 2WD, regular Cab, it means slightly higher rate leaf springs and larger diameter, wider rear brakes. The PP2 option ups the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of a Ranger by about 300~400 pounds depending on year and other optional equipment.
