LOL well infact she was the one who talked me into racing it thinking it would give me something to do hehe. I had a srt4 and a srt8 magnum and never even thought of racing them but i guess she fig i needed a hobby since i retired from racing in 1974. I said ok ill go once since we just have a 1/8 mile track and rest is history.

Daily driver for me. Already have 14k on it in after picking it up in december last year. Drive a mustang gt convertible on the nice summer days, unfortunately it can't keep up with the Jeep!

The jeep IS my company car. Car allowance plus $0.555 per mile. No way I would drive some fleet car all day. Jeep sees many job sites each week, any weather and plenty of car washes. Still looks new.

Daily drive mine as well... About 50 miles round trip for work... Ha I have other vehicles... I just love driving this jeep! (: and of course if I drive my girls Camry I ALWAYS end up lining up with someone at a light I would absolutely love to destroy in my jeep! So therefore I drive it constantly...

It's my DD, I've put 40k on it since I got it in 2010. Love to drive it, everywhere... My bank account however, does not.
