    99, all of the safety equipment, updated intake design, still had the high pinion D30 and no axle disconnect. No problematic distributorless ignition like the 00-01, those years also had problems with heads cracking I believe (can't remember for sure since it doesn't affect me).

    They changed very little from 97-01, but for a few things 97-98 still had a full roof rack 99-01 had a shorter one small things like that, every year had the sagging leaf problem in the rear but they are all pretty much trouble free.

    Best is relative, but my '92 is a tough old bird! The 4.0 HO is a pretty bullet proof engine, and the selectrac seems pretty tough too.
