The one on the right is a first Gen... unless you're doing a hand stand... In which case... you should stop that.

The one on the right (of the picture) is a first Gen, yes. It's on the left side of the captured Bronco
The one on the right (side of the captured Bronco) is a 5th Gen. It's on the left side of the picture.

Where I got messed up, is I thought that "on the right" was referring to the right side of the captured Bronco. I'm not doing a hand stand.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
And, as mentioned, there seems to be the corner of another fist gen Bronco or Ranger in the next row behind the captured Bronco.

Let's just agree that if this was one on those "captcha" security pictures, we would have to check every box as containing a Bronco or portion of a bronco.

I don't see many New Rangers that aren't gray or red. This is pretty much what my Ranger would look like if I had the 40k, without the silly wheel well gaps. My Boss has a Red one very similar. Boss has an XL STX.
This one has STX on the Fender vent and a bedside decal. Anybody know what that means?

In my town of 3,000 people, I've seen three. There's a red one (haven't seen it in a while), a black one (haven't seen it in a while, either, I think it was the first one I saw, right when the new Rangers came out), and a copper coloured one that I see all the time. Oh, my local dealer has a white 2019, and a black 2022.
I saw the red one tonight while I was out for my walk.

Hilarious description: 4 new coil overs, strong engine, broke at the welds after hitting pot hole (had rust on frame), comes with angle iron to fix it, other than that it’s great!

So the F-150 had the same frame rust issue as the later Rangers that could break the truck in half.

It's what Fords do. They rust.

My 02 had over 200k and was in the rust belt, body was going away but the frame was great.

Don't think I ever saw a slide-in with helper wheels before.
I have seen pics of them for CJ Jeeps, never thought I would see one let alone one for a fullsize.

It had glasspacks and sounded good. I bet she really sings on the highway. Holley 4bbl too.
