Best 2nd Gen Year?

Which year is the best for the 2nd generation 4x4 offroad TRDs? If money was no object, which of the years '05 - '11 would you buy? Which has the most hp for it's weight? Best off-road? (Looking to buy...)

Someone correct me if I am wrong but other than some minor cosmetic changes they are all basically the same. I might be wrong though.
