    whats the differences between a normal ranger and a ranger with the off-road ranger? are there differences in suspension and things like that?

    You talking about the 3rd gen STX's or the newer ones? If its the STX's your talking about, they have around 2" of lift from the factory.

    i heard the skid plates from a '98-00 off road package fit a non- off road, but i also heard they are pretty much flimsy tin, they don't offer alot of protection off road. i always forget to look for one at the junkyard to see for myself though.

    honestly though unless you're doing serious off roading, you probibly don't need a skidplate. i don't have any on my truck, no lift, and i've never had a problem off road.... except the time i tore my step bar off on a stump, but that's unrelated, lol.

    My 2000 XLT with the off-road pkg has 4.10 gears, limited slip, power steering cooler, and those chintzy skid plates.
