I am curious how many owners drive their jeep everyday no matter long their commute is and how many owners have a second vehicle. I do drive my jeep pretty much everyday for non commute driving but i also do over 100 miles per day for work which i leave up to my 06 subaru impreza. I will drive the jeep once or twice a week to work also.

I’m in the same boat. Commute from outside the city, so have a 2014 Mini Cooper for that. Sometimes take the Jeep in on a Friday

Drag our Rubicon behind our motor home and has full time use for 6 months or more while on the road seeing this great country, and will use it on trails out West. Drive a Denali truck and the wife drives a XT5 while we are home.

That's the plan for me: we'll be getting a new(er) car for the wife here soon w/ the baby on the way, so I'm going to use her little hatchback for my 70 mile commute.

My wife and I both work about 2 miles from home, but the Jeep still spends 95% of its time in the garage. Had it 6 weeks and it has 350 miles on the odometer.

I have an '05 Honda Accord that I use at least 1/2 the time. Mostly depends on the weather. I try to drive with the top down as much as possible. So if it's raining or just unbearably hot, I'll take the Honda.

First world problems here. Just kidding. Know everyone one of us is in a different stage of our lives which could dictate the answer the OPs question.

My original plan was a weekend only vehicle for my Rubicon until the wife told me to sell my car since she didn’t understand why I needed a weekend only Jeep. Plus my commute to work is like 5 minutes, so commuting doesn’t put many miles on it.

Still miss my car though. Happy wife, happy Jeep life.

My other vehicle is a ‘15 Grand Cherokee SRT. I drive about 100 miles a day round trip and find myself going for my JLUR fob more often than the SRT!! Both are great but there’s just something bout the JL!!

I drive my jeep for everything, but I have a very short commute. The 2 door is great for city cause it can park anywhere and turns on a dime.

I got a locking parking pass so it also takes me to hiking trails, even with top off. The offroad park north of me has been on fire for over a month so I have not been able to test it at the main off road stomping grounds in this area :(
