first gen gets my vote. plenty of the single cab trucks around with bad motors that can get bought for next to nothing.
But I am a sucker for first gens anyway...lol

I have a standard cab, I keep it because it was my first truck. The legroom from an extended cab would be really nice...

If I had the option of a 4BT, I would love to drop it in my '97. It was on a list of possible mods once I bought the truck. Then again, I'd drop a 4BT into just about anything...
