The reason I like the 82-87 is that the bed is 4 foot wide and I can fit a piece of plywood in the back. Not really a big deal if you have a full size truck, but if this is going to be your only "truck" then it something to consider.

the 78 im looking at has been transfored to the 1800cc dual range 4wd and the 82 has a webber carb. i think i like the style of the 78 but is their any differnce in wheel dimensions/ground clearance is one just a better vehicle? i want good off road capabilities, is the 2nd gen easier to upgrade?
the second gen has a readily available lift from http://www.ozified.com , but you can get a lift for the gen1 from mudrat79 in Eugene.
parts are probably a bit easier to find for the gen2, but since the 78 has already been converted to 1800 and D/R. it will come down to other less important things:
tilt steering wheel
roominess in cab
body style you prefer
I like the style of the Gen1 too, but prefer the bigger size of the Gen2...

I like that word choice, 6ft or better. The apartment I live here, it says "Luxury Apartment for those are 55 or Better"
How tall are you? If you are 6 ft or better, you definitely want a gen 2.
Of course my daddy is over 55 and I live with him.
