At this time, the only way to root on 4.4 is to downgrade to mk2 and flash a rooted 4.4 rom with safestrap. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2680868

I found this video here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlsO5o_-CI8

I'm on v4.3 and am looking into trying this. I have no desire to go custom ROM this time 'round and just want the ability to delete all the bloatware crap that's taking up space and getting in the way of daily functionality. I also don't want to reset/lose any of my data as it's currently comprised. I need to research this process a little bit more but he does say it works for 4.4.2 so maybe check into it?

If you're on 4.3, you're better off staying rooted in 4.3 till a verified for four 4.4.2 is out. I wouldn't use YouTube as a reference point for a currently unrootable device.. Xda is a better and more reliable reference source

I actually found a thread on XDA that was simply to root I install Safestrap so I'm all set now. Thanks.
