Default 4x4 sport vs off road

Hey there I'm looking to see if anyone can tell me exactly what the difference between the 4x4 sport and the 4x4 off road, I've done a little bit of research and from what I have gathered the 4x4 off road has a few underbody skid plates which the "sport" does not, and also the of road has the LSD diff? correct me if I'm wrong! I am looking to buy a ranger here soon, looking for a 2001 and up. If anyone has their input it would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks!

My XLT "Offroad" came with skid plates, 4.10 gears and limited slip.

Well the sport was available from 06+ so theres a big difference. The 4x4 offroad came with 4.10 gears and LSD in the rear diff (possibly the front. not sure). The 4x4 Offroad also came with FRONT, TRANSFER and GAS TANK skid plates

Offroad comes with bigger tires and is a better offroader than a sport just my 2 cents
