nah man.the generations of vehicles are always the same and all vehicles have them.these are not a nickname and cannot be changed.they are the body style generation.
when i say first gen camaro,mustang or t-bird what comes to mind? you probably know those very well no doubt and as you just read their names you probably pictured them right off the bat with ease.
Ford Mustang (first generation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chevrolet Camaro (first generation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ford Thunderbird (first generation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

here are the generations of the f-series pickups and they can never alter like a nickname:

Ford F-Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

so as you can see,the 87-91 is the 8th gen body style.the guy across the street and the guy in Ohio could call them a different generation.they'd just be wrong.

it still is stupid.
you got a 7th generation truck? big deal.
i have no idea what it is. tell me what year it is and i might be able to help you.

it is the same thing as new members coming here and saying "my truck engine sputters. what is wrong."

the very first thing they will be asked is "WHAT YEAR AND WHAT ENGINE"

oh it's a 9th generation.
big deal. what year and what engine? there were 7 different engines offered in those 5 years.
oh it's a 8th generation.
big deal. what year? there were 6 different engines both gas carb and EFI, and diesel offered in those 5 years.
oh, it's a 7th generation
big deal. in those 7 years there were 6 different engines, with both gas carb and EFI, and diesel offered.


a silly pet name or generation tag means nothing other than to keep people guessing as to what you really have.
