Would you use the wrangler as your everyday vehicle? I'm not sure that's that attractive, nor is maintaining / insuring a separate Honda Civic or whatever for getting groceries.
Since my work commute is about 20 feet, I don't really need a "daily driver." My current Grand Cherokee pretty much only gets out on the weekends, with an occasional trip to the grocery store.

Better pics to come once I actually get it dirty, but back in January I picked up a 2014 4Runner Trail. Starting to kit it out. Sliders, skids and flaps so far. Wheels and better tires to come in the near future.

For me is an F250 crew cab diesel 4x4 or a Polaris Ranger XP.

Only time I got stuck was at a beach in Oregon where my wife wanted me to drive out on the soff sand to the hardpack sand at the surf. Told her that i didn't have the right tires on, that I would have to air down hut I didn't have a compressor to air back up and I would get stuck. She said to do,it, so I did.

And got stuck in the soft, deep sand.

Well 4x4s have come a long way since the days when I drove this to get into the backcountry. 1969 Jeepster Commando. V-6 and manual everything. Okay you can laugh now. :giggle:
