new from Afghanistan... for now

Hey, all. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan. My home is in Georgia, near Savannah. I am looking at getting a slightly used 2012 Wrangler when I get back to the States. I was just hoping to learn a thing or two about Jeeps and where to put them to their best use until I can get home and claim one for myself.

First, Thank you for your Service.

Second, Look into buying a new one when you get back. Might be able to make a deal through the AAFES Car Deals before you get back. Look into it if you can. Seems like a number of dealerships have sites to help you out. Just make sure they are REALLY associated with AAFES.

Thanks for all the replies. From the perusing I have done so far, this seems like the perfect group of people for me.

Thanks! I totally forgot about the Exhange New Car Sales program

Yeah. I will probably use them to finance what my down payment doesn't cover.
