    I thought it would be interesting to see what others prefer. I'm not talking about dimensions or features. Purely based on appearance, what body style do you prefer?

    Personally, I've always been a traditional/resistant to change kind of guy. I think they are both BEAUTIFUL trucks, but I prefer the look of the 1st Gens.

    (I do wish it had the extra room, back doors, and modernizations of the 2nd Gen though.)

    1st gen wooo! unbiased opinion :D I just like the simplicity of the body. there's no secrets. no "fluff" as most new cars (including 2nd gen) have. it's what I consider to be the last of the true, rugged Toyota pickup
