I would probably consider my 5.9 to be a "Street Jeep" even with its 2.25" BB and 245/75/16s. I think wheeling is awesome but really haven't had the chance to do anything offroad. I would definitely like to do some mudding in the future though (flame away) haha. It's pretty popular here (no real rocks to crawl, sand, hills, etc.). Hopefully I'll get the chance come spring.
I think of my Jeep as the ultimate daily driver. It's kind of like a 4 wheel drive muscle car that is incredibly reliable, can fit 5 people comfortably, drive fast on the highway, has a ton of cargo space, can double as a hotel (I have slept in my Jeep to save money), dominate all the snow, ice, rain and whatever else we'll ever get here in Northeast Ohio and also go pretty much anywhere any other vehicle that isn't a dedicated offroad machine can go (even though I haven't had the chance to do this yet). I've driven it in some nasty winter weather on unplowed roads and it does awesome.
I wouldn't ever lower my Jeep or anything like that but I definitely like the fact that there is a section dedicated to making Jeeps faster and better on the road, since that's the primary use for mine.
ZJ 5.9 w/ 31s and some bolt ons
I don't have a problem with street Jeeps. I like having a powerful DD thats actually pleasant to drive. My ZJ with a BB, armor, and 31s is a pig to drive everyday, but it'll go anywhere I ever want it to in any weather. I also have a 5.9 for DD/nice weather duty.
A serious wheeling rig can't even be used as a DD... Having a street Jeep too is almost a given.
