We love our 2003, my wife and kids are really pleased. Nakman has a great point about the '99 and mods; this is sage advice; additional comfort comes with later model years. There is a "material" difference in the amenities on the later models. I love the 5-speed in the 2003 and a bunch of other stuff that I can't recollect.
I have not "wheeled" my junk yet, but have spent lots of time in the weather (big weather) of AZ, NM,and CO and been very happy.
