None, they just gave them different names over the years. I think the current step sides have T bars instead of coil springs in the front (RWD models).

Color keyed front and rear bumpers. Was the first stepside ranger.
Stripe kit.
That's about it.
Some say they sit 1" lower than a comparable xlt. I know mine does, BUT... I'm not going to open that can of worms again.

The splash was the sport version with a 6. Sport wheels, and lower to the ground. Shorter wheel base too... Splash has NO king cab. I used to have a 1994 splash. Junked it recently because of severe rust under, and then the fly wheel went. So, It wasen't worth repairing.

Scrap was up the highest I ever saw and desided to dolly it over and scrap it. I did love that truck..

Not bad at all I'd say.
