I think you mean OHV or SOHC. SOHC means Single Over head cam, Meaning that is has a Camshaft over each head. which in this case is more powerful, but it sacrifices some low end grunt, and OHV is Overhead Valve, which is a more traditional pushrod motor with a single camshaft in the center of the block. If you ranger is 2001 or newer and it has the original 4.0 it is SOHC, if it is 2000 or older it is a OHV.

Well, you will probably see 4.0L OHC and 4.0L SOHC in automotive references- but they are talking about the same motor.

But like said above^ there were two different 4.0L motors- OHV and the SOHC (or OHC) motor.
