I will be in the same boat soon and have yet to decide what I want to do. The price difference is close enough to almost be negligible, but if you buy new you will have to pay for all the farkles, on...

Dmf, just wanted to let you know I got caught up in another project today and just now finished, if you can even call it that. Hopefully I'll have time to get the temp gauge installed tomorrow.

Subscribed. I just bought a 2002 and love the power but suspension is lacking. Looking at the $8000 leftover 2014s I am considering upgrading. Curious if there were any first year issues on the 2014s.
