I've only been on the forum for almost 3 months, but have become familiar with many of the regular posters. Some I'd like to hang out and drink with, some I would like to punch in face, and some I wonder if they struggle to walk and chew gum. So in an effort to better understand my fellow Jeepers, what was your daily before your Jeep? Or if the Jeep is just your weekend toy, what do you currently drive?
For me -
2013 Audi RS5. AWD, lowered with full sport suspension, a little exhaust work, a little audio work, and overall a fantastic driving car. The Jeep is at the infatuation stage, but Greta was full on love affair.

That OP is hilarious, I hope I fall in the middle somewhere.

My previous was a 2008 F250 King Ranch. It had the 6.4 twin turbo with a full delete and tune. It had crazy torque and power. I had a leveling kit and ran 37" tires on it. I found that if your truck weighs 10,000#, you better run aggressive MTs. ICI bumper and 18,000# superwinch.

I had some larger trailers when i got this but I eventually sold them so i downsized to the Rubi. I got 250,000 good miles out of this truck, the power train was flawless. The front end eventually went out so i got rid of it, might of had something to do with the 400#s of bumper and winch on the front.

Overall, my feeling on this truck was absolute faith that it wouldn't fail to start and run and it never let me down. It costs a fortune to operate, but that's life. I miss it.

Before this, Jeeps.

My last daily driver was a 2010 MX5. Not a very practical family car. So of course I ordered a 2020 JLUR with a 3.5 inch lift and 37s. I may have to throw the kids up in there, but at least they will fit.

But, unfortunately I made the mistake of listing it on Craigslist a little too early and my 2020 JLUR is still not here yet. So here’s my current Daily driver until the Jeep gets in.

Hey Matt :punch: :beer: whats it gonna be?
I'm thinkin' craft beer at a microbrewery. You are curious without being stupid and are doing your research before ownership. All good traits, plus I have always liked the allroads. So you have that going for you.
Michael, I think we would drink whiskey and smoke cigars, tell off color jokes and be generally disrespectful and vulgar.
@GreyFox Brandy, I had picked up that you were a veteran. I was thinking maybe MP for some reason. From what I see in your Sahara pic, it would be my honor to buy you whatever you were drinking :like: Much respect:flag:

The line of peeps here that want to punch me in the face is probably long, lol, but I would buy most a beer. Here are my last two.
