Sorry you lost your Vette(s) - more than one? Anyway I still have mine and don't plan to get rid of it anytime soon. I can drive it pretty much year round down here in FL, and top down mostly. Well except during love bug season. Congrats on the new Jeep Wrangler. Let's see some pics of the Wrangler and the vettes.
New Willys and gone 2009 Vette. 1999 coupe long gone.

The Jeep looks great. Enjoy it. All my vettes have been white convertibles, so good taste there as well. Enjoy the jeep and the trails. There is another thread on here about posting pics of your jeep and your dog, hope to see your jeep and german shepherd on there.

Congrats and enjoy the Jeep. If it’s just you and your lady and the pup, dump the backseat. Lots of space there with the seat out. You’ll love being able to go where You want to, Put a basic kit together and carry in your Jeep, esp self rescue stuff if you are going down trails solo. Just a bit of preparedness will greatly improve your enjoyment and security when taking the “path not taken”. I love e plowing in my JL, bet you will too.

If you haven’t found it yet, there is a thread called Jeep Dogs. You gotta post pix of the Shepard with the Willys. Required for all new members.

Welcome aboard!
I didn't trade my Vette for the Jeep, but I did sell it last October.
That garage space now belongs to my Wrangler.

I am new to the Jeep JL Forum . I just traded a Corvette for my first Jeep Wrangler. My life long desire was to own a Jeep Wrangler. My new Wrangler is a 2022 Willys, 2 door, 3.6, Sarge with a hardtop. I had to garage my vettes for 5 months each year and couldn’t go off the beaten path, living in northern MN. It was time for a change at age 66. Setting up for overland trips with my misses and German Shepard. Good info on this forum!
I too traded a corvette for my first Jeep (2013 2dr Commando Sport.) I have since upgraded to a 2021 2dr Sarge Willys. Most practical vehicle I have ever owned.

Happy Jeeping!

Welcome to the Jeep Family. I believe you will find it just as much fun in the Mn winters as it is in the summer. Check out Iron Range Off Road web site if you are interested in learning the capabilities of your Jeep. It’s located in northern Mn. My wife and I did it a few years ago and had a blast. Well worth the money. Let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy your new Wrangler.✌🏻

Corvette + Wrangler would be a pretty epic garage. A C7 or C8 is one of the very few cars I’d trade my S2000 for.

This brings up bad memories— I sold my 54(1 of 200 Blue ones) to a collector in Germany and bought a new 89 Bronco that I never liked. :headbang::facepalm:
