Yes plus running up 450 miles up to Norfolk and 450 back when my job requires it. Some dirt trails but nothing serious. My wife drives her 2007 JK Unlimited everyday as well. Rarely off road for that one.

It's my DD. I'll get it dirty and she will be cleaned back up.

It is my DD but I don't offroad it...nor do I intend to. However, I am going to buy a 2nd jeep for that very purpose! Selling the truck now and then I'll be looking for another tj soon...

Yes and not yet.

I am just finishing upgrading tires and lift, so I have been paranoid about hitting the trails until the work was done. And still a little worried about going on to the trails w/o a winch...

Just got my 00 TJ a little over a month ago and it's my DD.
I've taken it on trails twice, the first time it didn't get so muddy, but the second time it was covered.
I don't enjoy having to clean it. lol

Another DD here. I wheel some pretty difficult stuff and always manage to drive it home the same day. No mud for me...but show me some rocks and I'm all for it.

My Last trip...pretty mild. The offroad course towards the end had some difficult parts to it.


A local trail near me...only as tough as you want to make it.


Also, another local trail that is fairly difficult.

Thats the beauty of it,in fact I think we all like to wait about a week after wheeling before cleaning of the dirt wearing it proudly around town like a badge of honor.Others can only look on with envy never being able to experience what you

just have,the sights you have seen and the people you met along the way.Only in a jeep

My 06 rubi is my dd, about 33,000 miles a year! It never gets abused off road (it is still my dd) but it see's plenty of light trail time, especially during hunting season. I take it on the trails on the weekend, then drive it to work on monday, cant do that with most vehicles!

Yes and yes...no hard core wheeling but love to trail it, occasionally sand dunes, and the snow we get.

Yes, and yes but only a little bit (such a PITA to clean I'm just as apt to tiptoe past a mud hole add i am to charge through it), sees plenty of use as a beach buggy and trail rider on weekends though.

Wheel wisely and listen to wiser members.

sadly mine is a DD, hopefully not for long. Going to buy him a brother of course it will be another Jeep. The Jeep is invincible, so if I need to go down a dirt road or through mud I just put it in 4wd and give it hell!

Yes and yes. However if I ever hit the lottery I'd dump so much into this that it wouldnt be street legal anymore and I'd have to get another Jeep just to have as a DD.

Unhappy

Yes...and sad to say, never been offroading... only had the jeep for a few weeks now, and I don't know of any trails in my local area. Need to find a jeep club! Also, since just recently bought the jeep, have zero dollars for any type of mods...
