Most people don't know the '97 dash was different from the other years, but that was the year they pulled a few special tricks out. Aside of the indiglo dash it was also the only year to have a third power outlet. It was where they put the airbag key down by the ashtray in the newer models.

OH man I am so happy. It's slower than the 2.5L and the i-beams don't handle as well as the A-arms, but I've never been happier with a ranger since 1997. (had 14 of them total, but never a red 97 since then).

The very last thing I had to do was order a new rear bumper because this one is bent on the driver side. Just found one on eBay. NOW I am totally done. WOOOOOOOT.

That truck is 14 years old BTW

I have a '97 XLT stepside as well and I thought mine was in pretty good shape despite its age but yours is a cream puff.
