    How long is your deployment? Is the new Taco that much better than the old one?

    Personally, I wouldn't sell it for a new model unless you know the 2014 will have features you really, really want.

    Yeah I would hang on to it for now. Unless you need some cash, but then you will need a vehicle when you get back..I would hang on to it.

    My opinion is keep it and have somebody look after it and run it once and a while.

    If 2014 brings a 3rd gen, it will have bugs that will need to be worked out. I personally would never want to own a first year of a new model.

    Oh yea, most importantly, thanks for your service, and stay safe during your deployment!
