Oh yeah, my Jeep is my baby. But it's not a daily driver, the only thing stock on it is the tub. Because of the larger wheels the odometer/speedometer is not accurate, but I guess it gets about 7 to 10 miles to the gallon! I don't drive it to estimates because it has sound to it - 360 engine with headers and 2 1/2" dual exaust with FlowMasters. It sounds awesome, but my white collar office worker clients would probably not think so. That, and the sticker across the top of the windshield probably wouldn't make for a good first impression.
