what do you got?

Do you have a daily driver, trail rig, second vehicle?
I bought my jeep because we had 1 car and I had a work supplied truck that couldn't be driven after hours, so if me or my wife went out in the car the other was left at home with no transportation. I figured get something fun that I could enjoy it. It was the best decision I ever made. Love driving with the top off, or driving on the trails. Let's hear about you.

Got an 08 JK 2 door X that is my wife's daily, I have a 95 YJ Rio Grande that has never seen snow, and never will, that I drive in the summer to play with and trail, do Jamborees, and so forth. I also have a 93 and another 95 YJ that I use at my businesses only in the winter for plowing. Those get stored in the summer. My 05 Grand Cherokee limited is the other daily driver, but that stays in the garage alot as well. I drive my company mini van...lol...put miles on it instead.

Actually, I have 4 motor vehicles plus a handful of non-motorized ones.

Our 2013 Sahara is actually my wife's DD. She said it's her midlife crisis vehicle and she traded her 2003 GT Cruiser in on it. Remember the scene in War of the Roses where Barbara Rose said she traded in the family car for one of those 200hp things with the big knobby tires? Her Jeep purchase kind of reminds me of that.

My 07 JKU is my DD/ trail rig. For the time being while it is my only vehicle i will try to only off road it mildly but once its paid off and/or i have another DD I will get a little bit more extreme with the off road trips. For the time being I am having a blast accessorizing it. JEEP = Just Empty Every Pocket

I have 6 rigs. I find myself driving the TJ more than anything because of the grin factor.

Got my Jeep when my ford escort engine blew up. I decided to get a jeep because I have always loved them since I was little. I Use it as a daily driver and weekend trail rider. Nothing relaxes me more then getting a few friends putting the top down (weather permitting) and going for a trail ride. I also love the jeep wave, when I get a wave back it puts a smile on my face.

My '04 has been retired from daily driver duty years ago. I bought it just to tow behind the motorhome. Then, I developed this wallet emptying sickness that seems to plague many Jeep owners.

I would drive it everyday if I could. But these days, some douche-nozzles think it's ok to take things that somebody else has worked hard for.

So, I end up driving my old '94 F250 4x4 anytime I have to go somewhere I can't keep an eye on the Jeep.

The wife gets the good car. Lexus RX330. We take that when we go anywhere together.
