Wink Hank Hill's Ranger

Hey guys I know this is Random question but I was wondering if anyone here knows the specs of Hank Hill from king of the hill's Ranger. We know its 5 speed Manual and its red but is there a way to know what year it is and what engine it has lol. I don't really expect anyone that have the answers to this but since its like The most Famous Ranger of all time might as well talk about it

Hank drove a red Ford Ranger pickup truck drawn to two different body styles (First generation (1983-1988) and Third generation (1993-1997)). In a later episode, the Ranger breaks down and is subsequently destroyed by a train. At the end of the episode, he buys a red Ford F-250 Super Duty 4x4.

Uhm... lets see... it was a 93-era one... so what's that, a 3rd gen? And I'm willing to bet it had the 4.0 in it...

Hank's Gen 1 Ranger had a big round air cleaner housing so it had to have been carburetted. I've also noticed on that show that they liked to draw 3rd Gen Tauruses (my other car is a Gen 3 Taurus) a lot, lol
