Buying a lightning, will 99-00 be good, or do I need to get a 2001+
I went and got preapproved for auto loan to purchase a 2nd gen lightning and have been looking at different ones through autotrader and ebay.
My question is, am I going to be dissappointed buying a 1999 or 2000 instead of an 01? I read how they have 3.73's over 3.55's, better driveshaft, slightly different grill and little things. I personally have never actually noticed the difference in the different model years but I guess after I get to know them, I will...
I can save some $$ on a 99 over a 01.
Im looking at 13-14k for a decent 99-00 with avg miles, or I can spend 16-18k for an 01 with similar miles. I really would like to go the cheaper route if possible but if its worth paying more I will get the newer one.
What do you guys think?
