Default New daily driver

Yeah i know some of you drive it everyday. Rain snow sleet hail sunshine too. I however just cannot stand the idea of nasty wetness getting all up in my car, salt and other crud eating away at it.
As for driving it to work, sometimes i do but fear the small parking lot spaces so normally driving the Hyundai but damn that is no fun ti drive. Greasy on had at 36-42mpg but blah.
So i got an OCD complex for the past month and ended up buying another vehicle.

drum roll....
....

Yup. It's a Hemi
At least ill be able to haul my car out of the state when I move.
2017 4X4 Dodge Ram 1500 BIG HORN

I'm the same way, can't have my GS as a daily driver. Don't trust the weather, other drivers, parking lots, etc. My other vehicle is a Wrangler and I love it----complete lack of anxiety and still fun to drive.

Elijah, we have similar tastes in cars and trucks. I got a 2012 GS for fun and my daily driver is a 2015 Laramie. You'll love the truck!

Both those daily drivers, including a Wrangler probably cost more than your Vettes.

...but less than your helicopter

wrangler (new) cost less than vette (7 yrs used) and neither make a good daily driver in my opinion. having both is perfect for me b/c they couldn't be more different.

Nice truck. My daily is a cavalier. People at work always ask me why I don't drive the GS more.

Congrats Elijah71; I use to have a 2007 Ram 1500 when I had a car trailer and loved driving it.

You'll dig it! Have no complaints on mine. Keep your foot out of it and you'll be impressed with the fuel economy too.
