    I stopped by a out of the way Dealer today, he had a brand new '07 with full warranty for $3000 out the door, I've spent the afternoon taking all the accessories off my 97 and bolting them on the new one. I'm big happy with my new toy.

    A brand new 07?? Holy crap. The op of my 09 said he bought it new in 11... Now I believe him. Nice score. Pics man.

    Nice find.







    Remember to watchout for the basegasket leak. I've not fixed mine (07'), so far it's a very very slow leak.

    No sign of a leak yet, my 97 with 10,000 miles hasn't leaked either, maybe I'll get lucky with this one too.

    No sign on my 01' either. But both my son's 06' and our co-owned 07' have leaked. He had his 06' taken care of under warranty. Seems to be only a problem with the 06' and 07' years. Just keep an eye out for it. Great find though.
