97 to 199? had the OHV as the base engine and the SOHC as an option before it came standard.

The SOHC was optional for the Explorer beginning in 1997.

I did plugs in a SOHC one that was a 98. It was a pita. The truck however rewarded me with doing 150 foot long four wheel drifts everywhere in the rain. So I guess it evens out...

I've seen a SOHC in a 97, and an OHV in a 98. So it could have either engine in it.
