Csahara Back home and it started up just fine. =)

Plowboy1970 If anything, put a charger on the battery for an hour or two. But I would just start it up and just let it idle a minute or two and take it out for a ride. Also check tire pressure too.

lindel If the battery has enough juice to turn the engine over a few time, you should be golden. Let it idle for a few minutes and you should be good to go.

Jeep sat for two months, what to check?

So I'm coming back home tomorrow from a two month trip to China and my Jeep(and my wife's Acura TL) has been sitting the whole time(unless someone drove it without telling me lol). It's a 2000 4.0L auto. I just bought a new battery before I left(same for the Acura) so I'm worried it may have died? What are some other things to check? Another thing I'm worried about are the fuel lines and maybe the filter. I do have a new performance pump still waiting to go in though.
