Negative.
When bad weather comes, the Wrangler goes in the garage, the Denali sits outside.

I justify it by saying "But honey, you don't want the soft top to get ripped off of it, do you?!?!?!?!?!!"

going to need to get around in the aftermath, the jeep will be more capable than the yukon's, denali's, and the like. Probably going to need the winch to clear paths as well.

I wish I had a garage. Then I'd have something to do. There's plenty of stuff I need to do to it and nothing on TV and crappy weather outside.

Fortunately there's enough room for my wife's car and our jeep... So far so good here, but you guys near the shorelines are getting hammered.. Since I had the day off I also re-located my fire extinguisher, not being one to let a day off go by without doing something jeep related..

Took my TJ to my folks garage, I'm in an apartment complex. But we are getting really strong winds, and it hasn't stopped raining since this morning. Will be interesting to see how things look in the AM.

It's a Jeep, it likes the weather.
But I did change parking spots to get out from under any trees.

I would move the jeep depending on where the wind was coming from and depending on

what was being destroyed by it.. I move my favored vehicle around during a hurricane, as I do not want to chance the garage falling on it..
