Default AT&T Galaxy S4 on Metro PCS - Which root procedure do I follow?

Anybody know? I have an unlocked AT&T phone (SGH-i337) with a Metro PCS SIM card in it.

Which root procedure would I use?

If I'm not mistaken, the AT&T variant was SGH 1337 or something, if so then you can do it by using Auto Root from ChainFire
CF-Auto-Root
If your particular variant isn't there, then you can follow this guide here as well

(he forgot to ask to have the SD card formatted to ext2 format, so do that yourself)

On that first link, I see SGH-i337M. Mine doesn't have the M attached to it. Is that going to make a difference?

i337M is the Canadian version. The APN will be different, but it won't matter for rooting.

If you're on MF3, use this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2387577

If MK2, use this one: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2565758

To find out what version you're on, go to Settings> About phone> build number and it's the last three characters
