Default What's your daily driver and why?

For the last 11 years, I have driven the same XJ. It has 150k miles on it and has been quite reliable. Last month, my boss told me it was "disreputable" and that it smelled bad (must be the years of accumulated deer blood that leaked into the carpet in the cargo space - I'm used to it, so I don't notice). He told me if I took customers out in it that he would fire me. Then he gave me a big raise and told me to use it on a nice sedan. So, I bought a 2005 Acura TL. I kept the XJ, though. My wife thought it was a bad idea to plan on transporting deer carcasses in the Acura.

This is my current DD. '85 CJ7 and as you can see a lot of goodies.


And here is my old DD that I drove for a few years

1977 cherokee. I plucked the engine out of that and put it in my CJ.

You might have guessed it, but I'm a Jeep nut

I can relate. I would really like to have a CJ-8, but I can't get anybody to turn loose of one.

They are getting pretty hard to find. Definetly one of the coolest Jeeps ever built.
