Re: Storing WK for 3 to 7 months...I have questions.

Just fill it up with gas and place it on jack stands. Your battery should be fine if you have a good battery.

You can remove the IOD (Ignition Off Draw) fuse. That takes care of a lot of the parasitic loads on the battery when (as the name would suggest) the ignition is off.

There are, however, still some components that suck up power even with the IOD fuse pulled. If storing for a month or two, by removing the IOD you get to keep all of the adaptives. Anything longer than that, I would be concerned about the few systems remaining killing the battery.
