Normally thought to be "Sport Truck". It depends on the model year what came with STX. Some years it was a trim level like XL and XLT and other years, there were actual parts included on STX, like higher ride height or bigger shocks. Then F-Series took the name away from Ranger so Ranger came up with FX4. Then F-Series took that name away from Ranger (shares the name actually).

Maybe it means (Sport Truck X-country) or something? STXs are supposed to have extra off road goodies. Probably stiffer suspension and different differential in the rear for better traction....

This question has been brought up before, From what I've heard it is the stx badging, the rear height stays the same, upgraded shocks front/rear, the upgraded shocks level the front with the rear, and the interior has bucket seats standard.

Just from what iv'e heard. I could be wrong. I'm quite sure there's a website that will give you the accurate info. keep surfin, you'll find it!

It means Sports Truck and it is a package arrangement dealing with suspension upgrades and exterior body styling. Mine is a 91' w/black trim all around...grill, bumpers, mirrors,and windshield trim. There is also a rather large decal running full length of vehicle w/STX on the lower portion of drivers door. The suspension upgrades are minor shocks are a tad bit stiffer and I believe there was also a sway bar in that package as well. Mine is a 3.0L, 5spd STX supercab, 3.73 rear w/limited slip and captain seats.

I'm With RangerDJB, My '87 came with a tubular rear bumper, rollbar, Grillgaurd and front bumper that were all black. High rider package, Heavy duty suspenion, limited slip, 3.73's, skidplates, 3 thick decals down the side, 2piece grill(chrome outer ring charcoal inner), full upolstered door panels, and deluxe bucket seats.
