My JK isn't my daily driver. Even though I have a reasonably short commute of about 20 miles round trip, I choose to run around town in my 2012 Focus and leave the JK for playing.

Well, it was my DD for the last 1 1/2 years. 10 miles, 30 minute trip one way. My sugar mama just helped me solve that, I quit after 10 years at the same company. I now get to stay home and work on finishing my schooling. Only problem with this is I now have to be creative when coming up with the money for mods to the beloved Jeep.

No. 32 miles each way from my driveway to my office. Price I pay to be in a more rural setting with space, yet still have shopping, restaurants and bars nearby. My daily driver is a 2012 Subaru Outback. But, I do drive my JK to the office once a week.

44 miles one-way through 3 states (OH-WV-PA), winter time can be sketchy for sure.

But just the freaking thought of dealing with that traffic...ugh.... I'm on the opposite corner of the Chicago-land area from him...and for me to try to get their on a weekday was a non-starter. Well that and Crook County taxes.

4.8 mile commute for me out in the burbs. Car, motorcycle, bicycle....it is all good...

I've been retired for 6 years so my daily driving is whatever I choose to make it, but yes...my JK is my usual DD, though my Ural gets its share during nice weather.

Inner city trafic is a PITA. If public trans had a direct stop to work my DD would have 1k. But 16 round trip with heads turning at my heep makes it better. Top down til it hits 40s..

Wait, what? There are people who don't drive their JK's every day? Isn't that kind of like having the coolest, most fun, most gorgeous and perfect wife on the planet but you only spend time with her twice a month?

Nope. 1/2 mile walk to work.

Good thing, too, since I put 16k on it during the first year with no commute!

3.5" AEV, 17" black Savegres and 35" KM2s.
