at first i really only liked the boxed out kind (like mine), but the newer ones with the painted bumper are hitting a note with me, not really sure on the years, i think around 02?

I'm saving this info! Thanks Evan!

I am in love with 01-03's. Second favorite would be 98-00. Third favorite would be 95-97 Supercabs (I don't really care for the dash in the 93-94). Fourth favorite is the 04+, and then Fifth is a combined 83-92.

I like all Rangers.lol.

interesting i kinda wondered what was classified gen's of rangers ,and where mine fell,always figured 2d gen. But didn't introduction of 4wheel drive kinda screw with the classifacation on 1st,and 2nd generations.Because i've heard that 4wheel drive wasn't introduced until 1985.

I like them all about the same starting from GEN II.

I prefer TTB over wishbone for durability, strength, longevity.

I prefer the 98+ because of the third/fourth doors.

So basically a 05 cab 1/2 on a 97 chasis with the 4.0 SOHC(supercharger kits for these)

4x4 5spd. manual. That is the prime base truck to strat with.

But for now this will have to do.
