Don't know if this has been posted already. In 2001, I called Fords Customer Assistance Center about a used 5.0 Mustang that I had purchased. The person on the phone asked me my name, address and vin number. Two weeks later, I was sent for free a letter from Ford in Deaborn, Michigan. It read

'01 & '02 Sport Tracs,
Here's a link from a sticky in the 2001-2005 Sport Trac forum

http://www.etis.ford.com/vehicleRegSelector.do

If the link above doesn't work, go to the 2001-2005 Sport Trac forum here and click on about the last sticky (by ncranchero). I just checked the link there and entered the VIN for the Sable I bought my daughter last week. Shows all original options on your particular vehicle. I printed off the info for my Sport Trac from there a while back. Pretty interesting to read how it was originally equipped.
