Who Drives their SRT as a Daily

Just wondering how many of us use the jeep as their daily driver. I have a company car so I do not. I have a hard time getting myself to drive the jeep when I go places.. A. incliment weather. B. Golf Course C. Company car and Company pays for gas.

So I do not Daily Drive mine

Yes except for days with bad snow, nasty road conditions, likelihood of hail, etc. Then we take the 4WD GMC truck. I can go down to the local GMC dealer and buy another equal or better truck any day of the week. Not so likely with the Jeep.

I don't think she thought the Caliber was to small Jim, she just knows if she has the Jeep you can't sneak off to the track, lol.

Daily Driver for me, in NYC all the time, up to Buffalo and out to Montauk Point - tip of Long Island! I can use my wife's company car sometimes but it just doesn't quite put the smile on my face the way my Jeep does!!
