DD or weekend warrior?

Do you use your JK as a daily driver or mostly having fun on the weekends?

My jeep is only a week old but the plan is both. My weekend warrior but let my girl drive it during week for her work commute about 6 miles away from home. I use her car as a daily driver to work during week about 50 mile commute. On weekends we switch and I get my jeep back but not sure who makes out better lol.

Was planning to use it as a weekend warrior but until I lift it and put on some 35's, it's my DD because it gets better MPG than my truck.

Both here.
It's what I love about having a Jeep Wrangler.
She plays on the trails, shakes the dirt off of her feet and it's back on the road like nothing ever happened.
Afterwards she cleans up real nice too.

DD every day. And then it's also my hunting rig when we head out...so I vote for both.

Both my JKU and my wife's JK are DD's. Offroading consists only of light dirt trails to actually get somewhere like a lake. If we can ever afford a 3rd vehicle then one of our JK's will be built into a weekend beast.
