Default Splash, Edge or Regular?

Excuse a newbie for asking a maybe simple or often answered question:
What is the difference between a Splash or an Edge? Technically and on the outside?

I am asking because I would like to lower my Ranger in the Front and I have read that a Spash is already lowered by factory. And I am wondering if I would have to change my nickname

Stefan

And please: excuse my language - I am not from here...

A Splash is more less the earlier "Edge" package lol. It appeared in like 93-97 Rangers IIRC. Then they went to be called a Sport (98-00), then an Edge (01-05), then back to the Sport (06-11).

However, the Splash is always a stepside.

They all had similar features in that they all have color matched bumpers and no chrome. Some are 4x4, and some are 4x2. Also I know Edges all come with Vinyl floors..

does a splash (need to) have some extra decals? What about the front suspension - am I right with the factory lowering?

Being a 93-97, that truck would be a Splash. However, it's easy for a previous owner to paint the bumpers. All the splashes i've ever seen have had decals. But it may have been possible to delete the decals from factory, or a previous owner may have pulled them off/ had the truck repainted.

I ahve heard that it is lower, but im not sure. Sometimes i have seen the Splash's have the splash decals



not the best pic but you get the idea

----------

that is for sure a splash, because the splash's had those wheels. also the painted bumpers and colormatched mirrors. It has too much stuff on it that makes it look like a splash, that im going to go out on a limb and say it IS a Splash

door jam sticker

1. Exterior Paint Color Code
2. Region Code
3. Special Order Code
4. Wheelbase Code
5. Brakes Code
6. Interior Trim Color Code
7. Tape/Paint Pinstripe Code
8. Radio Code
9. Axle Code
10. Transmission Code
11. Spring Code
not every sticker is the same layout, this is a general idea


found this trim listing, does your ranger have a "T" or "V" in trim listing (under TP/PS ) (#7 in decoder) ?..... this will verify its a splash.. any one can put a step side bed on
P — Platinum (Ranger XLT "Off Road")
S — Silver (Ranger XLT "Off Road")
B — Blue/Dark Blue (Ranger XLT)
C — Copper/Gold (Ranger XLT)
G — Green/Gold (Ranger XLT)
T — Tea(Ranger Splash)
V — Violet (Ranger Splash)
4 — Silver/Medium Graphite (Ranger SE/LE)
5 — Beige/Brown (Ranger SE/LE)
8 — Santa Fe/Woodrose (Ranger SE/LE)

splash's came with basically a 1" drop all around. xlt lowering stuff will work just fine on a splash. but if you buy a 5/7 drop, you will technically only get 4/6 out of it. if you buy 3" drop beams only, you will get 3" drop. the splash's stock "drop" is in the springs.

"splash's" carried over til 98. they are rare, but do exist. also, starting in 97, you could order an xlt with the stepside bed without the splash package. but 93-96 stepsides were only available on the splash, and came with color matched mirrors, bumpers, and grill.

There is no mark under "Tape", just empty. But according to the original bed, bumpers and mirrors painting I am shure it is a Splash and I can keep my name...
Does a Ranger of this generation have electrical sidemirrors in general?

So lowering the front with this kit would not be a good idea?

Ive always loved the Splash's. Would love to see Ford bring them back. My first truck was a 95 Ranger XLT. Althought it wasn't a Splash it had an added option "splash suspension" which was basically a slightly lowered XLT with the Splash rims. Man I loved that truck.
