groovebus I put about 30 miles round trip on mine every day. Plus sometimes I just go buy crap so I have a reason to drive it. I always take the long way back from lunch to work.

Future Wrangler I am kind of a drive one car guy. I plan on driving my new JKU everyday, 52 mile round trip.

Really its a terrible choice for that long of a commute, but I don't drink coffee, so that saves me more than getting a economy car. Once in a while I may take out the 1988 mustang, as it was my fun car when I got sick of my real car, but I can see the love for it is fading fast, and I will probably only drive the JKU now.

After 51 years, cancer and the different outlook it gives you, I say to heck with practicality most times now. smile

Besides, if I didn't drive it, my wife would be piling the miles on it!

Rancho I prefer the truck as a DD, as I get 17-18 MPG's

The JK is around 12 MPG

What does the 5 year old want? The JK, can't blame him, even though the Truck is on 35's!!
05-21-2013 11:02 PM
Microfox 35 miles round trip, 95k on the odometer. My 07 JKU is my DD and I wouldn't have it any other way.

MI JeepSkate about 30 miles, having the same problem with the top off :/ i work 12's, so its early mornings and evenings every day, but i still do it anyway! when school is in session i have around a 40 mile round trip to and from home and a 55 to work, school and back home. bought it in november with 29,900 and just turned 36,000, goodbye basic warranty

Happy JK I've had mine for 2.5 years and posted 15,600 miles on it, wish I could use it more, but smiled during every mile

PrecisionPowder 40 miles a day for me

DF Jeep My commute is 82 miles round trip. I occationaly switch rides with my wife (8 mile rt)to keep the mileage down. Just traded in my 08 jku with 84,000 miles. Driving home topless n door less helps keep me sane.
05-21-2013 04:47 PM
tabo DD, about 30miles each way. The office sits on the Blue Ridge Mountains in VA; it's a great ride when the weather is nice and I can take off the top. But we're moving in July, it'll be closer to home, maybe 10 miles, each way.
05-21-2013 04:44 PM
gcb3 Yes it is, I wouldn't want any other kind of vehicle either. Right now I'm at about 60 miles round trip, avg a tank a week getting 19-21 MPG. In a few months it's gonna jump to close to 100 miles round trip, but the new home will be worth the trip. 20 acres of peace and quiet, that's hard to beat.
05-21-2013 04:43 PM
dreinecke Yes! 51.5 miles each way 5 days a week. I freaking LOVE this thing!
05-21-2013 04:40 PM
keeton16 18 miles one way for me. I am crazy too, I can`t wait to drive it.
mine is an 11 with 26K miles on it.

rustynail11 I have a 2013 JKU Sport and it is my DD. 28 Miles's each way to the office and tons of running around to various soccer fields with the kids on Weekends. I have had it for just over 2 months and just turned 4000 on the odometer.

J33P4M3 1.8 miles home to work. best commute in the world other than tele-commuting.

My office is 175 miles away but I only go there two days a month. I love every mile of it!

nekojku I use the JK as my DD only because my commute is 11 miles each way.

LIGX Picked up my first Jeep about 2 weeks ago. Yes it's my DD. My commute is about 30 miles round trip. I love driving it. It's been nice here the last few days and the hard top is in storage so I pull back the soft top crank the tunes and take the local roads home.
05-21-2013 10:24 AM
LewdDude yup, got my new one 2 weeks ago tomorrow, and I am already at 700 miles...
05-21-2013 10:15 AM
Happy JK Just trimmed my commute from 5 miles to 3 miles. It used to take up to an hour some days and now the worst case scenerio is 30 minutes, usually 15 minutes each way
10-29-2012 07:00 AM
DrWardner My 2013 JKU is my DD, and I have already put 2500 miles on in a month!! I love it!!

Con Artist Since my Camaro took a shit on me (again, as it does once every 100 miles), my Jeep has been my daily driver but I have to be honest, I've done my share of taking joyrides in it.

I travel to various locations around the area for work, so mileage could be anywhere from 20-40 miles per round trip.
10-29-2012 12:49 AM
805lraquino74 30miles round trip. I agree, I love driving my jk.

Jeepers Creepers Silver I work from home other than one day a week I have to go into the corporate office. I have a company car for work related items, so my Jeep is my DD but my daily driving consists of taking the kids to school and picking them up, other than my once a week commute.
