Precautions while storing Land Rover Td5 for four months?


Recommended Posts

I shall be storing my Defender for a little over four months in a fairly hot and somewhat humid climate (Uruguay, now summer). Battery care is already accounted for but are there any precautions I should take (for example maintain certain specific tyre pressures) or anything else? I'm not sure yet whether or not the vehicle will be under cover.

Jack it up and put it on axle-stands so there's no weight on the tyres (to avoid flat-spotting, which can lead to strange and difficult-to-solve high-speed wheel-balance issues).

If it's out in the open, cover the tyres to avoid UV-light hardening the rubber (and so compromising grip) on the exposed-to-the-sun parts.
