Default 2003 4x4 Edge 4.0, the year with no factory EGR?

I have been told elsewhere that my 2003 Ranger Edge 4.0 4x4 should have an EGR but now that I'm swapping in the 2002 X motor there is no wire for the DPFE or EGR valve actuator. I've seen here and rangerpowersports what appears to be that in 2003 ONLY Ford did not use an EGR. Is this correct?

I have heard rumor of this, there have been posts in here that I have read saying the same thing.

I have a 2003 4.0 and do not have an EGR valve. From what I've heard 2003 is the only year without one.

My 2003 bright red Ranger Edge Plus doesn't have the EGR either. At first I thought the previous owner capped it off, but then after doing some research on the subject I leaned that all the Ford Rangers are like this.
Ford is really weird like that.

I think it's a plus too. I actually installed a 2004 engine and now I'm putting all the 2003 stuff back on it. Like the upper intake. I removed the EGR tube from the 2004 exhaust manifold last night and put the plug in it. That was a real PITA because I had to remove the exhaust manifold from the truck to do that.
