jeeps is going to sit.... PREPS?

hey jeepers,
so i'll be gone for two months from school and my jeep is just going to sit. I was wondering if i could get advise on things to do before i stow it away. i know to put it on stands, treat the gas, disconnect the battery, and put on trickle charge but thats it. i was wondering if i could get anymore advise? thanks in advance

I'm not sure I would go thru all that for only 2 months

Is there anyone you trust to drive it once in a while instead?

Just google motorcycle winterization prep. It will typically cover every thing you would need. although my vehicles sit for a month sometimes with out use. I wouldn't be overly concerned. 3 months + maybe...

I had a Ford Escape that I let sit for nine months, no prep, just parked in a car port and the only thing that was wrong was my battery was dead... but it needed a new battery anyways... I think you should be fine... just my .02
