4.0 DOHC in a Ranger???

I was doing some filter crossing for a customer with off brand tractors (aka non John Deere) in my Fleetgaurd filter book the other day. I noiced under Ford Ranger the normal engines, 2.3, 3.0, 4.0 OHV and 4.0 SOHC, as well as a 4.0 DOHC. I did not know there was such a thing. When and where was it used and what power did it have? Is it a misprint?

There is a 2.3L DOHC currently used in the Ranger but there never was a 4.0L DOHC Ranger.

yeah there was only two different 4.0L ever in the rangers. the 4.0L push rod aka OHV which was stopped in 2000. Then in 2001 the 4.0L SOHC.
