Also make a copy of your DD214 if you have one. Many manufacturers have special rebate through the 30th for all military....not just the active military.

Good luck.
Did the truecar last night and it was very helpful.
Actually have a retired AF ID in my wallet!

Have a great holiday weekend - and thanks for the PM and tips above!

Be careful with power tools! Remember Steves SIL and his thumb!

Hope your spring journey is a great one!

Jeff and I know that Wranglers cost more. They are worth it and they hold the extra value at trade time......if they are ever traded in.

I have had several conversations with Jeff on Jeeps including one while at the dealership yesterday! As I said though - not sure a Jeep is for us. Still pondering and mulling.

Steve, next time you are at the Jeep dealership, ask how they check the transmission fluid level. A close friend has two Jeeps (not sure what model names). He tried to locate the dipstick for tranny fluid level check.

Hi Stephanie!!
Steve--we traded a Tahoe LTZ for our Jeep Wrangler , so you can imagine how that felt. The good part was, they gave us the Wrangler and several thousand dollars. Though the Wrangler is a great toad, it is rough riding, hard to climb into, and has MINIMAL carrying space. Woe to anyone who has to ride in the back seat (we don't have the Unlimited).

That said, my hubby LOVES his Wrangler and it is his DD now. (I have an MKX like Wayne's so what do I care? Though mine does not have "curb appeal." ) My point is, make sure you understand "It's a Jeep Thang" before investing in one.

Hi Stephanie!!
Steve, Jeeps are the best toad on the market, for many reasons. No locking steering wheel and flat towable. Wranglers are not for everyone, but I really like the new Cherokee models. They are flat towable and much more civilized then a Wrangler. But you must get the right transfer case to flat tow, and they make two or three. If I had a diesel pusher my toad of choise whole be a Ford F150 four door four wheel drive. I think they have to be four wheel drive to flat tow. I just like a pickup. You can tow a Jeep with the key off, the wrangler anyway, and they don't have the dead battery problems of other toads. And there is no speed limit and running it for five minutes every so many miles.

Thanks all - I was deliberately baiting the Jeep contingent and knew some would take the bait! I actually agree more with Bacon Wrapped Filet Man Don aka KSCRUDE - the 4X4 150. But one night I went to sleep and the next day said truck was $50k. I am not a car person apparently. Annie and I have 2 old beater Jags and have driven them for 6 or more years (can't remember exactly) and paid $10 K the both of them. No real repairs and no problems. When you look at what ya get for the money in a MH - it's just crazy to me. All I want is a reliable - new - point A to B car that will flat tow and last. I don't need an investment or a cult. LOL and
