Moving to Africa, Need Advice

I'm in the military and we're headed to South Central Africa this Fall for my next assignment. I'm selling my Volvo XC60 because it's going to be much too fragile to drive out there. I'm looking at buying a Wrangler to take down there. Life-long CJ fan, but I need something solid and dependable off road.

If you had 35K, which Wrangler would you buy, and what would you add on to it in order to survive 3 years South of the equator? I have no idea where to begin other than I know it needs to be white.

Any suggestions?

It you want something to baby buy a JK if you want something that you can beat on but will still be dependable get a YJ and put some extra cash into it to make it what you want and to still have savings left over

Because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.
