Another option you might consider if you want to mirror index funds instead of a low cost index mutual fund would be investing in SPY which follows the
S&P 500 and QQQ which follows the Nasdaq-100. They could be held for the long term and no capitol gains would be owed until they are sold. They can be traded and bought the same as stocks and can be even bought at a discount broker such as BUYandHOLD.com for a specific dollar amount and fractional shares. It sounds like you have a great start to early retirement and by using SEPP to avoid the 10% penalty for early withdrawal of your funds from your 401k, you should have no problems.
