Storing a Jeep out in the hot desert sun I would think I would remove anything vinyl like the dash pad, sun visors, seats and probably the steering wheel. They would dry out and rot for sure.

Small bowls of Mothballs or Irish Spring soap is another way to keep critters out. Put them in the engine compartment and interior.

I would fog the engine also.. along with all those other good clues.. and very true about the desert rotting tires.. unless you take them off and put them somewhere out of that desert heat..
I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers in his JEEP!...

X2... that's really the best option. Just fire it up once every few months and use a half a tank of gas. Use synthetic oil and you can change it once a year with that little bit of driving. Seals and gaskets will start to dry up and fail after a couple of years of sitting.

How about a 20' ocean container (if your parents have room), business write off as well. Here in So cal they can be had from $1800-$2000 delivered. Maybe a toy hauler, maybe $5-6k and can be used as a "lunch room".
