Default whats the differance....

...between a regular 4x4 ranger and a 4x4 "off road" ranger?


is it just a decal or would a ranger with the "off road" stickers have something like skid plates or a factory levaling kit, differant wheels & factory tires or what?

idk why but that question kept me up last night, lol

the "Offroad" package usually includes transfer case and gas tank skid plates, a limited slip rear and the towing package.
