Default Vehicle Options

I recently purchased a 2005 Ranger 4x4 Edge SuperCab. I am trying to find what options this truck has...gear ratio, etc. Is there a web site I can enter the VIN and see the build sheet or options?

The site you're quoting explains what the Z stands for, it's basically the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating).

Right.... I said "from the link you're quoting" which happened to be the Ford.com link that you were quoting.
