I've owned an '89 and a '00.

Both have their strong points. I kind of prefer the boxy 2nd Gen body, but my 4th Gen is a lot nicer truck.

I don't care for 3rd Gens as much.

I personally really like the 95-97 mazdas, not the Rangers. I like them suspension wise. I really like the 06+ rangers body wise

I have had a 88 92 and an 01. The 1st and 2nd gens were little tanks and I loved the body style but I like the 01 the best I thinks it's a nicer truck.

Third gens are the most durable. Especially with that 2.3 lima.
