Daily driver here too. Though when I feel rammy I take it out to the lake with the boat and/or desert with the kid. He loves the trips and honestly my wife is happier that we didn't get the minivan instead. Also I would like to add that minivans get around the same mileage too which I wouldn't have thought it to work but it did.

Lastly I would say with a programmer (even my low-functional bullydog GT) and giant intake I am now around 24-27mpg (once in a while 30+) freeway and 15-20mpg city depending on traffic.

This should be a seperate poll, lol. Who doesn't get the urge to drive their truck on some unchained open back country?

My 2012 Sport is my daily driver also, I go to work with it although I don't actualy work with it. It snows around here also and that's when the 4X4 pays for itself.

Daily driver/work truck. The company I work for gives me a monthly truck allowance and fuel card and in turn I use it to make service calls and go to jobsites to set up equipment. I only wish I had a beater truck to drive to and from the shop so I could keep overspray from getting all over it.

This was not supposed to be the deal when I got it. that's how I convinced the wife we need a truck. I have a 95 Acura Integra that I'm SUPPOSED to be driving the 84 miles RT, but it just doesn't ride like the Ram. I drive the Acura once a week, and I have to psyche my self up to do that.

Mine is my daily driver. I traded in an 09 Hyundai Accent and sold my very heavily modified 08 Hyundai Tiburon and bought the Ram. Gas is a bit of an issue going from a 30MPG+ daily driver to a 13-16MPG daily driver. Also, when I put a Supercharger on the Ram, it'll be harder to keep my foot off the skinny pedal lol.

I'm planning on picking up a new bike to daily drive unless the weather is inclimate. Maybe a used R1 or something along those lines.
