No...you misunderstood what he said back to you....
It's OHC explorer is the same as the (S)OHC in the ranger.... OHV is the 2.9 based 4.0 found in '00 and older rangers and explorers. The 4.0L SOHC was introduced in the Explorer in approx '97. It was also introduced in the ranger in '01.
They are not different engines.
