Interesting options, how rare is my truck?

I know the proverbial "you have a Ranger, it's not rare" is coming my way. The only reason I'm posting this thread is because the more I am on here, the more I am realizing I'm not seeing too many trucks optioned like mine.

So here goes. I have a 2004 XLT with 4.0L, electronic shift 4x4, 5-speed manual, 4.10 open rear, stepside bed, 2-door Supercab, solid rear glass (no sliding middle window), factory bed liner, and ARE tonneau. The truck is black with black/gray interior and 60/40 bench.

Here's where it gets interesting. From what I understand, in '04 the XLT package included the power package. I have crank windows, manual mirrors, manual locks, manual seats, no cruise control, and no tilt wheel. The really interesting thing, at least to me, is the rubber interior matting. There is no carpet anywhere in the truck, it is all hard rubber. I have never seen another truck around here with the same rubber floor in it.

As I'm on here more, it's just been in the back of mind more to ask the rarity question. Any help is very much appreciated.

You have pretty much the most common 04 ranger.

The rubber floor was an option in the XLT. I have it too, and it is possibly the best thing about my truck.

You truck sounds like a baseline XLT with a few options.

Thanks for the information guys! I guess where I live everybody has a lot of money and always gets automatic transmissions with power everything (try finding a stick shift here, some dealers won't even take your car as a trade-in if it's stick), which is why I don't see too many.

I love this truck's hardcore personality, very fun to drive.

prolly the rarest option ranger was the reg cab 4x4 or fx4 4.0...... or the reg cab 4.0 manual with stepside with 3.73's.

regular cab, 4.0, manuals w/ or w/o 4x4 are really far and few between.
