I don't believe there is at the moment. Basically the 4.0OHV did change till around 2000ish and then it was the 4.0SOHC and even though '96 and up is OBD II troubleshooting should be basically the same.

I do understand the seeing mostly newer rig questions and is sometimes frustrating when search for a resolution.

Good evening sir! I believe that you have a few posts regarding this issue. I responded to one of them (1990 4.0 4WD Starting). While my vehicle is four years newer, the info I posted there may help you. On my truck (OBD1) here is where and what the plug looks like. It may help you. Also, there are very good YouTube videos that can show you how to read your codes.
