During wheeling season I'm on the trail almost every weekend, i've driven the bronco every time so far because my fricken truck was broken.
It's got a metal hard top, gota get the heat fixed, exhaust isn't that bad, it's a little more civilized then a jeep.
If a nice lady wants to go some where with me they hop in the rig or they are told to move on. If I ever do throw my balls away and get married the unfortunate one is leaving the wedding in my trail rig at the time. The whole civilized thing hasn't kicked in yet. My bronco is probably nicer/ cleaner then my pile of truck.
Well, if you're in barbarian mode, still, then here's an excellent reason to NOT make your trail rig your DD. At some point, you will be out on the trail. And, since you're still a barbarian, you'll get drunk/cocky/stupid ONE time, and that will be the end of your DD and you'll be stuck. I've seen it happen so many times, I lost count. These days I just laugh...
Think of it like a safety thing, like carrying a 1st aid kit. Most of the time it's redundant and you don't need it, but that ONE time you need it, you're thankful it's there. Also, even though you THINK you like bombing around in your big burly trail rig, scaring kids at stop signs and generally making sure everyone knows you're a badass because you drive a trail rig to work/school/whatever, the reality is that it is nice to have a comfortable vehicle to do regular driving duties in. Also, what happens if your trail rig breaks because of the DD duties you're asking it to perform? The street can be hard on a rig, too. Constant wear on a trail rig is exaggerated by bigger tires, lower gears, heavier suspension. All of that puts additional stress on things like ball joints, TREs, wheel bearings, and bushings. Stuff that normally takes several off-road trips to wear out will go much faster, now. Then you're stuck and can't go wheeling....that would suck even more than not being able to get to work.
