Edge vs. XLT

Is there any difference between a 4.0 edge and a 4.0 XLT?

--besides the colored bumpers and floors --

Yes. The suspensions are completely different. A standard 2wd xlt uses a coil spring front suspension whereas a 2wd Edge model uses a torsion bar suspension in the front. Also with an xlt there are no factory lift blocks in the back but in the Edge model they come with 2" blocks.

^^besides that, the Edge 2wd sits the same height as any 4wd Ranger with a torsion bar suspension.....AND if you desire to have 4wd, it is SUPER easy to swap an Edge 2wd to 4wd with STOCK parts from any 4wd '98+ Ranger....

and some 2wd Edge's come with fender flares...

The Edge also has a vinyl floor, body matched bumpers and wheel flares, and with the suspension differences (as mentioned above) the Edge rides allot higher in 2wd form. 4x4's have the same suspension...

there is also another thread from a member who is complete on his 2wd Edge to 4wd Edge swap, and ScottG has started a thread about swapping his 2wd Sport Trac to 4wd (same suspension under 2wd Sport Trac as a 2wd Edge).....
