I have a dilemma.
I am an owner of a 85 cj7 4 cyl. Ive had it for about 3 years and love it. There's nothing I like more than tinkering on the thing from time to time. It's a beautiful condition, all original.
Ive had the recent need to explore alternative transportation. Creature comforts, gas mileage, distance, tax benefits, all come into play. I'll spare make and model for fear of being booted off the board
I have no desire to sell my Jeep, however, with the addition of the new car, I have no room for it (plus id rather not 2 car insurance payments)
I have the opportunity to leave it at my folks place in AZ, where it will remain dormant, under cover, outdoors, indefinitely.
Is this a good idea? Will leaving out in the hot desert (under cover) weather the Jeep badly? ( I assume it's better than leaving it out near the beach where I live now, because of rust, but what do I know?)
Anyone have any recommendations for leaving a Jeep this age dormant for long periods of time? (my knee jerk actions would be to unhook, battery, empty the tank, plug orifices like tail pipe & intake hose, etc. etc.)
Or should I just swallow my pride and sell it?
Thanks in advance.
