Storing for a year???????

I'll be storing the jeep soon for a year. It will be sitting in the back corner of a 60x120 heated shop back home. Covered up. "parents shop"

I'll be pulling the battery and adding some stabilizers to the fuel tank, putting an old set of junk wheels and tires on it to sit there on.

Which fuel stabilizers ya'll like? I've use the Stabile stuff in the past for other vehicle and had no issues.


What else...??????????



I'm not asking what to do before I start it back up when I return. Just the storage for 1 year.

Thanks

Like making sure the suspension gets flexed every now and then on the hood of the vette?

As long as it is climate controlled above 50 I wouldn't worry about much. I run stabil in my fuel tanks when they just sit. I stored my old chevy truck for a year in climate controlled storage and it was fine when I pulled it out.

Yeah, I've done the same for my other vehicle when gone before and they're fine when I return.


Guess I'm set then.

So...when do I get a ride in the new "dookey"?

Since you are already using stabil, you prolly already know, but get the correct amount in the tank, run it for a bit and get the tank about as full as you can get it, so water vapor won't have anyplace to condense in the tank.

While you are taking the wheels and tires off to hang the junkers on there, give the brakes a shot of lube too.

If you run tap water in anything (I already know you don't) empty it or replace it as it will start growing stuff.

Have fun between now and March!

Check.

Brakes will be removed and replaced with a little something different when I return before I drive it again. So...Check.

Check.

Thanks for the input bud.
