Hey All,
I USE mine as a Daily Driver and Then some. I Put about 3500 miles a month on it.. ANd i couldn't be happier. I had before this, a 2004 Hummer H2 that i bought new. This is by far the best vehicle (4 wheels) that i own. My wife has a new Durango and i enjoy that also when i do drive it (prying the keys out of her hands).

My 2010 is my daily driver / work truck. I'm a contractor so I drive a fair bit, usually about 600 kms per week on average. Just rolled 64,000 kms this week, only two weeks shy of 2 yrs old.

It's my daily driver/work truck. I do home remodeling and repair so my mileage varies from week to week. Not real impressed with the gas mileage although it is better than my last truck. A 93 ranger on 35's.

I have to be honest... It's a garage queen for now.. I am driving the beater in the winter and saving the truck for the nice summer days... I know sounds crazy but I thought hey, I waited for this truck for a while....

My wife is a farm girl and she looks at me like I'm crazy....lol

I got a Challenger at first, and had a Camry for a daily driver. It was clear that car was not going to survive another winter. So we decided to buy a Ram as a daily driver for me. Well having 3 cars is just not looking very practical for us, so we are going to sell my wife's 09 Mini Cooper and she will drive the Challenger daily. Besides, I'm finding that I really like driving my truck. The seats are more comfortable for me than the Challenger, and my wife is really happy about having a really nice car for herself and that we will only have 2 cars. I have a 52 mile round trip to work, and then all the other little trips. I'm guessing it will see about 300 miles per week.

It's only slightly modded for now. I'm hoping that I can add a lift kit and some 35s this year or next year. I kind of feel like I need to use up these Goodyears that came on my truck. I mean, I paid for them, so I might as well get my money's worth out of them
