Thumbs down Newbie has dumb question

Hi, I just joined the forum. I had a 1996 Ford Ranger XL for 10 years and I just traded it in for a 2004 Ranger in mint condition. My question is how can I tell what model it is? It just says Ranger on the side (no XL or XLT). Is their just a plain Ranger basic version?

Welcome to FRF

It could be a xl or a edge. Does it have painted front and rear bumpers along with fender flares?

----------

The xl and edge come with just the emblem on the fenders that say ranger.

The front and back Fenders are Black and the fenders are slightly flared. I put a few pictures up of it so you could see.

I think I like the new term "Simple Cab".
As opposed to the "Complex Cab".

Another way to tell is if it's a 4 cylinder, it's an XL, ALL EDGE's came with either the 3.0 V6 or the 4.0 V6.
