New Jeeper from Qatar (Deployed with AF)

Hello All,
Been browsing on the forum for a little while now and figured I'd go ahead and jump on in. Just got my first Jeep a couple of weeks ago. Kind of a cool story as I haven't even seen it yet. You see, I'm currently deployed with the AF flying around the Middle East. I knew I would be looking for a new vehicle when I got home this summer and had decided that it was going to be a Jeep. In talking with a buddy of mine (who is my resident Jeep expert- he's an old CJ guy), I decided that my goal vehicle was going to be an 04-06 LJ. I didn't want to spend the money on getting a new one and I really like the 2 door Unlimited body-style as I have a wife and kids to take along on my mountain adventures. My preferences were for it to have manual transmission, hard top (I live in Colo), and if possible a Rubicon.
So, I'd been researching and looking at vehicles since I got out here so as to educate myself as much as possible for when I got home and started looking. From what my buddy said and what I was reading here on the forum I was preparing myself for a long search, when I woke up one morning and saw an ad for exactly what I was looking for (even down to the color I liked the most - dark blue). I emailed the ad to my friend to see what he thought and one thing led to another. Was being sold by an Auto Broker who my friend had worked with several times before and who let my friend take it home for the night so as to put it up on his lift and give it a really good inspection. My wife loved it, my Jeep-guy friend loved it and said it was in awesome condition and a couple of days later I was the proud owner of an 05 LJ Rubicon with 6-speed manual transmission and all done while I'm sitting out here in the middle of the desert. Less than 3 weeks left until I'm back home with my family... and my new Jeep.
Really appreciate all that I've learned through you guys here on the forum. Have a few questions already that I'll start in the TJ forum here shortly.
