Got a Jeep but can't drive it...:(

I am a noob, not only to this site, but to the Jeep world.

I finally bought myself a Jeep. After years of staring at them longingly, I finally decided that the time was right and I was going to go for it.

I am in the Canadian Forces and after accepting a year long posting to Afghanistan, decided that once I am on Canadian soil again, I was getting what I've always wanted.

My husband happily joined in the search. I had a vision in my head of my perfect Jeep and I wasn't going to stop searching until I found it.

I little over a month ago, my husband sent me pictures of a Jeep he had located at a local dealership. I laughed because it certainly did not fit with the picture I had in my head of what my Jeep was going to look like. But...

I kept going back to the pictures he send me. I even went on the dealership website to get a better look. Something about this Jeep was pulling at me. I couldn't get it out of my mind.

I few weeks ago, I returned to Canada on a two week holiday. Toward the end of my time there, I decided I wanted to go to the dealership, "just to look...By the next morning, the Jeep was mine.

What I thought I wanted: 2013 all blacked-out or Anvil with red interior 10th Anniversary Rubicon.
What I bought: 2012 Gecko Green JKUS.

I had the Jeep for 6 days before I had to return to Afghanistan. I will not be able to drive it again until March 2014.

I miss Ricky

Oh that's painful - the waiting! Any jeeps over there you can drive in the meantime, you know, to help prevent withdrawal symptoms.

Welcome and thanks for being there.

Welcome to the forum!

I couldn't have done what you did. No way would I have bought a new Jeep knowing I had military obligations to keep me away for a few months. But that's what love does, right?
