Which 4Runner would you choose?

For sake of argument, we'll assume both choices are in good condition for age/mileage, 4x4, and well equipped.
Would you choose a 2nd gen 4Runner (90-95) with 3.0 engine and low miles(<100K)

or........
A third generation 4Runner (96-02) with higher miles (150k+) a 3.4L v6 (an engine I'm familiar with)

And please tell me why you chose the one you chose.

I like how the 3rd gen looks a bit more round than the 2nd gen...

I voted 3rd. gen. The 3.4 is a MUCH better engine than the 3.0.

2nd Gen, because of mileage and looks. I know nothing about 4Runners though.
