2013 JKUR is my daily driver. Would not have it any other way. I actually look forward to my drive to work in the morning

My Jeep isn't even second in line as a daily driver.

I have an E-250 and for days I don't need a van, I have a crew cab Nissan Titan. It does make the times I get to use the Jeep feel like a party!

For now my TJ is my DD, but I only live about 3 miles from work. They are about to move our command though and I will have heavy traffic in my way and a lot longer drive. So I am considering getting an old beater Civic with an automatic to get me to work. Leave the TJ for weekends and date night. Then maybe i can start putting a lift on and all that other fun stuff.

Top comes off in April, back on in Nov.
Drive it when nothing is falling from the sky, otherwise it sits in garage and I drive the F1fidy.

Same with me and my JKR. I live in northern NM, and if there's a little traffic when I'm driving in town, I can usually drive around it. I consistently avg. around 21.

My TJ is a third vehicle. I drive my lame Camry to work and my chevelle on weekends. TJ is only used for jeep jamborees and hunting trips.

Not my daily. 1997 Honda Accord does 25 miles each way commute. It gets at least 10 more miles to gallon and tires are cheaper to replace. Also less road noise.

My daily driver is a 2013 F150 company truck. Evenings and weekends, the Jeep wins out over the F250.
