    Default MV as a Daily Driver?

    Anyone else here use their MV as a DD? I get lots of looks from folks, esp when I tell them I drive my CUCV from Atlanta to New Orleans or Texas in mine.

    Never have problems finding where I parked though...

    I drive my M1009 when I need diesel therapy. That works out to about every 2-4 days depending on how crazy the week is and how badly I need the soothing rumble of that 6.2L.

    I like diesel therapy, I also attend sessions, but mine is on a larger scale -5 ton. Maybe soon I will be partially cured and can get my fix from a m1009.

    I could easily swap my expedition for a cucv daily driver, guess i'll start looking, I am feeling better lately -- lol

    will

    Glad to know I'm not the only one! That Detroit motor just hums right along and makes me smile, like the well oiled machine it is.

    You are definitely not alone. I'm thankful we can celebrate each other's success and commiserate with each other's misfortunes here on SS. This truly is the best home on the Web for those afflicted with OD Fever!
