Default So what is special about the Edge vs off road package

I have seen some rangers that say off road on the side of the bed with the 4x4 logo
what is the difference in a " Edge" vs "off road pkg?"

looks same to me but there's gotta be something I am not seeing

Even if the sticker says Off Road, it's a plain jane XLT 4x4 with an LS and a tcase and fuel skid

because I have or think I have a 2001 ranger edge 4x4 has power everything ,mirrors,locks etc..6 cd changer ,remote keyless entry, automatic. stepside( flairside) or is that just an edge? or is it a XLT with " edge" decal

when I read your descriptions sounded like the xlt only had power everything

If it has painted bumper vinynl floor and painted fender flares it is just a EDGE it will just have a RANGER on the fender instead of RANGER with XLT under it.

The Edge package is basically a 2WD Ranger with the 4WD ride height, in between the base Rangers and the XLT's. It was offered from 2001-2005, and as far as I know, none of them have a 4 cylinder engine.

I assume you meant to say that the 2WD "version" of the Edge package has the 4WD ride height..and not to imply that all Edge packages were 2WD.

The Edge most certainly can be 4wd, since I own one. It's just a looks and appearance package.

Yours is a 4wd EDGE

When I got my truck there was a 4wd edge next to mine it had power and all.
