POLL: Is your Wrangler a DD (Daily Driver) or a Weekender?

Well, I'm buying a jeep tomorrow and it's going to be more of a fun on the weekend, take off the top and drive kinda car.

I have a Toyota as a daily driver and it's great, but a bit boring.

How about you?

You need to add "Daily Driver AND Weekend Offroader" on that poll. Thats why I havn't voted yet.

Sorry orange. Having a hard time editing; just assume that daily means everything else too.

Yeah, theres nothing better then driving home from work and then tearing ass up the power line trail on spur of the moment. The people behind you will give you the strangest looks.

Cool that you started this, because I was wondering about that too. Can you modify the poll? Because I would be interested how many here do not only use their TJ as a dd but have also not done any mods. Like me, I drive a 00 Sahara, totally stock to work and back every day and am happy enough to go play in the snow now and then. Still, I enjoy the car tremendously! With most of this forum being about lifts, winches and what not, I was wondering how many others are out there that just drive it stock, on the road and are still enjoying it .

My ex used to have a fairly high stress job, so to help her blow of some steam, we bought her a MG Midget, I told her that $4k car would save her at least 5x that much in therapy bills, so we decided to get her a vanity plate of "THERAPY". Alas, when we got to the DMV, the plate was taken, but the clerk said we could just switch the last letter from "Y" to an "E". That just didn't seem appropriate at the time, but in hindsight, with Lucas Electronics, calling that little car "THE RAPE" might have been OK.

Not too sure what the neighbors would have thought...

Mine is DD and toy as well. Then again, I've pretty much decided that anything I drive from here on out will be that way. Be it a track toy or a trail toy.

We use the wifes Ford Exploder for work, we're only a block apart. Gas prices keep us from driving both vehicle to work. Sometimes we take the jeep though. I'm fine with getting to play with it on the weekends and days off.

Hi Scout!
I don't think Scout has any chance of taking the garage queen status around here.
