Arrow 2000 Ranger 4x4 ORP w/ lift

Hey fellas! So I'm brand new to the site. I purchased my Ranger a while back and as it sits, I realize I don't know a ton about it. I realize it's an ORP with a 4.0 V6 and that in 2000 they came with a skid plate for the rad, t-case, and fuel tank, but really not much else. I have done a bit of research but don't really know what to look out for. I was wondering if you kind folks could tell me more about my Ranger and what is/isn't stock, what's been changed, and if possible, what kind of lift this may be.
Thanks guys! Love the site so far!

Welcome, nice truck!

It appears your truck has a body lift on it (guessing 2"). Thats why there's a gap between the bumpers and the body. You can eliminate the gap by possibly adjusting the bumpers or buying brackets to move the bumpers higher. You also have aftermarket clear corner lenses, aftermarket receiver hitch, and aftermarket black steel "D window" wheels w/ larger than stock mud tires. Step bars look to be factory (maybe from another year?). Besides the spray-in bedliner, I don't see anything else non factory.

Wow! The first real reply I get and it's by a fellow Aaron! Anyway, I was under the impression that ORP was used as an acronym for Off-Road Package. I could be mistaken though, but that's what I meant by it. Also, thanks for explaining the gap, I could tell it was caused by the lift but wasn't sure if there was a way to get rid of it. Thanks for pointing out everything else too. I would have never known that the corner lenses and receiver hitch were aftermarket. As for everything else, I kind of figured. Now I just need to figure out what exhaust is installed on it (Whatever it is, it's almost TOO loud!)
