Yes...it is my DD...and jeeps have been for a couple of dozen years. Screw comfort. ;)

Current commute, 8 miles...takes about 12 to 15 minutes...and I do it in an auto trans. Life is good.

Have driven further...and in worse traffic. Probably the worst was a 12 mile commute that took an hour...in stop and go traffic...in a manual. Life sucked.

Wow. A short commute is kind of nice at times. 10 miles one way for me. But I get to enjoy the top being off because when you leave downtown a 10 mile trip turns into 30 minutes. No funny stories, just lots of relaxing when cruising at about 20 mph on the interstate.

10 miles each way.

Not much interesting happens other than the occasional deer scaring the hell out of you.

4 miles each way, 3 of which are spent on the highway. Door to door takes about 7 minutes. Kinda sucks when it's topless weather since the drive it so short. I make it worth while by taking the long way home.

No commute. I work from home. And in warmer months I've got a couple motorcycles to run around on.

Seven more 52 mile round trips to work then its off to retirement towing it behind our Motor Home full time RVing. Thirty eight years is enough cant wait to get out west to do some off roading and see this great land of ours. I would like to thank all who have served and died for this great land that gives us the freedom to do that.

i'm at 50 miles round trip. usually takes about an hour one way. i have the option of a door-to-door train that takes the same amount of time and costs less, but i can't stop driving the darn jeep. maybe now that the weather sucks i'll be able to force myself to take the train.

It will and will not be....

4.8 miles from driveway to parking lot.

90% of the time I drive my old Intergra or my motorcycle to work or to the store. But I need a vehicle that can haul/tow up to a medium sized load, and can get me through the winter. That is what the Liberty is for...and is why I only drive it when I need it.

So why am I replacing a perfectly fine 6 year old Liberty which had 19,907 miles on it when I purchased it from CarMax 4 1/2 years ago, and has 36,697 miles on it when I took it to them for an appraisal this morning?

Because I've ALWAYS wanted a Wrangler. Even if the price tag is through the roof.

I probably should have kept the Libby, and traded in the old Integra on a 2 door, 6 speed Wrangler and used that as my daily driver, but I didn't trust the JOG/clutch/parking brake issues in the manuals.

DD.
26 miles & 2,600 feet down one way to the office.
Through the woods, down the hill but not quite over the river.
Closest groc. store is 18 miles away.
Closest parts shop is 19 miles away.
About 35 mins to the office depending on I40 traffic through the canyon.

Just hit 10K. Had the Jeep since May. Love it.
Best vehicle choice for fun since the 68 Mustang.

70 miles round trip. MPGs are horrid but I don't care. If I'm not in my JK I'm on the bike, but I am much more in love with my JK.

Bought mine on 01/26/12 and have 15,389 miles on it. I drive the heck out of it. I hate switching with the wife and driving her GC Summit. I end up missing my JK.

I tell everyone no matter how bad a day I have had I smile every time my butt hits the seat. Only vehicle I have owned that I can say that about.
