Garage parking question
I just wanted to get others opinions on this. When I park in my garage in the warm weather the heat from the jeep warms the garage up to 90+ for several hours after. The garage like most has no exhaust or anything to remove heat so it stays warm for a while. I can put my hand on the grill three hours later and its still warm after parking. I just wanted some opinions if this is harmful or doesn't matter?

Re: Garage parking question
Is it harmful to what? the garage or the Jeep? I seriously doubt either. I mean your jeeps sits in the noon day sun for hours right? we easily get 90-100 degree days here all summer especially off parking lots.

Not a problem, doesn't matter. It is better than leaving the Jeep outside.

Re: Garage parking question
I worry about the confined heat from the garage in the summer almost as much as I worry about the earth opening up and swallowing the Jeep.

It just isn't an issue. The protection to the exterior of the vehicle far outweighs any potential drawbacks (which are negligible if they even exist) from the thing cooling down more slowly in the summer. Remember, the engine compartment has much higher temperatures while you're driving around- if that won't hurt it, a gradual cooldown from those temperatures sure won't.

Hmm, the question leads to a follow up, "Is this the first vehicle you've ever parked in a private garage" because it's no really no different than any other large engined, catalytic controlled vehicle when parked in a confined space.
