So, i just bought.....

I am going to buy a 1999 Ranger XLT 3.0 "Sport" from a family freind, ive only been able to get the owners manual, i was wondering, what exactly makes the "Sport" model different from the regular models? thanks.

my friend is trying to sell a '99 3.0 sport and i have an xlt but really the only differences are the front bumper is painted to match the truck, the doorhandles match the truck, the rear bumper is different, his truck has an in-dash tach, and of course the "sport" decal. Oh yes, he also has factory fog lights. These are the only differences we have noticed in our trucks yet

In 99, the sport was really no different exept for cosmetics. Color matched front bumper and door handles, different rear bumper, fog lights, tach., and sport decal on the bed
