What do you drive when you can't drive the Jeep?

While i was doing my lift and didn't have a my jeep to drive i had to drive my mom's penguin cover liberty. It wouldn't have been so disappointing to drive except i had to drive it too school and it's covered in penguin stickers, penguin seat covers, penguin steering wheel cover, girly stickers, and little penguin stuffed animals on the dash with a dolphin hanging from the mirror, almost was incentive to finish my jeep faster haha. But yeah, the only thing that could make it greater is the fact it's the fancy Columbia Edition (didn't really understand what made it that) but i'm glad I have my xj back

So let's hear what everyone else ends up driving when their xj's are not drivable

If my XJ is out of comission, I drive my wife's Liberty - it's got Tweety on the tire cover, so I know how you feel buddy! Otherwise if the weather is good, I'll drive my Monte.

when my jeep was down for the upgrades a few weeks ago, i had to drive my moms car too....

but its a supercharged mini cooper.... so i REALLY enjoy it!

glad to be back to the XJ tho, not so worried about 'accidently' doing twice the speed limit anymore either

When the yJ is down, I drive one of the two XJs. If one of the XJs is down, I drive either the other XJ or the YJ
