Lightbulb Daily Drivers or Weekend Toys

A wrangler is something I have mostly thought of as a weekend toy. Majority of people on here use them as that and keep a daily driver for work and such things, or the majority of you use them ast toys AND daily drivers???

soon to be a weekend toy, that is when I get the money for a new f-250 lined up, but I too have a back up vehicle, ( 06 nissan maxima ), so its not really a daily driver because if the weather is bad, or really hot, or I have a little run on the interstate I leave it in the garage.

Daily driver. 85 mile round trip commute to the office.
Gave my 06 leathered out truck to my wife just so I could drive the jeep as a DD. ??? Somethings wrong w/me.

I split my commute between the Jeep and my motorcycle. However I will probably use the Jeep more during the wet winter times.

Yea I have my bike too and love it...can't ride right now due to a herniated disk. it sucks ass.

If i get the wrangler, I will have it as a dd. But going to want to lift it with 33's at least.

My JKU is my DD. It does serve as a toy also, but it also serves to get my quads to where I'm going to play (and sometimes getting around the same tracks if they are wide enough).

My jeep does it all.

JK is our one and only vehicle. We traded a KJ and a Chrysler Sebring for the JK.
