Open the hood and brake torque it a little in drive and reverse. If a mount is gone, you'll see the engine lift.

Have you had the fuel rail recall done recently. Running rough might be bad ignition wires. That is a frequent after effect of the fuel rail recall due to moving old wires around.

Just keep in mind, that even with perfect mounts, the engine will move a little. Ranger is meaning some major lifting.
