Buying Truck while downrange

I am currently in Afghanistan, my truck was totaled this last June. I would like to purchase another Tacoma while I am here so to not pay the taxes and perhaps get a deal. Does anyone know of a program with Toyota or 3rd party to get that done.
I know there is one for some American made companies (ie Ford, Chrysler) but I have not found one for Toyota.

Any help / POC would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried the carbuying service that's available through USAA? This is what I did with my 2011 Tacoma Double Cab Long bed. You get preferred pricing and then they route the vehicle out to a minimum of 3 dealers within your locality who will email and call you. The price you build it for is what the dealreship should be selling it to you for or just a fraction over, gives you great negotiating power with the dealer as I brought this information with me to the dealer who contacted me.

Damn, I had sh** luck with USAA. None of the dealers came close to their price.

To the OP, I've never heard of such a program besides like $500 military discount from Toyota. Maybe buy the truck in a state without sales tax, I think Deleware would be the closest to NC, but DMV might catch you up on that when you go to register.

hey op not sure how soon you are looking to purchase but just a heads up... Greenvile toyota is doing a double your down payment. so you put down 4 grand and they make it 8....its on all 2012 tacomas and tundras. just saw the commercial yesterday. you should be able to send their internet department a email and talk to them. not sure how long it is lasting though.

edit- commercial was just on again and it goes all month.

You'll end up paying taxes based on the zip code of your residence. Even if you bought in a state with no sales taxes, if you register in a state that has sales taxes, you'll get hit with paying the sales taxes when you register it. I've bought vehicles while deployed and bought vehicles from out of state...it all comes back to where you register the vehicle. Even if you can initially register it in a state with no sales tax, you'll pay the sales tax when you register it in your actual state of residence...each state has different rules on the timing (CA is 2 years for example, other states may be less), so it wouldn't hurt to check your state's DMV website to see what their rules are.

I'd e-mail a few dealers and see who is willing to work with you to get the vehicle you want, when you want it, at a price you are willing to pay.

As far as USAA prices, that's one option to look at. Even if the dealer isn't part of USAA's buying service, they may come down to USAA's price. I bought a Jeep once that way...the nearest USAA dealer was over 100 miles away, but I got a local dealer to match the USAA price.

Look into the COSTCO deal as well. Membership isn't too expensive, and you can easily make up the membership cost and quite a bit more by purchasing through them.
