I am curious about storing the Beast for the winter conditions in about a month. I sure it's been discussed before BUT could someone enlighten me on how to handle this please? I plan on starting it up weekly and allowing it to warm up to operating temp. If the weather permits, i.e. no snow on road, I will drive it around the block or more. The fuel tank will be kept full and I plan on an oil change before it goes to sleep. Do I stay away from fuel additives such as Sta-bil etc? Am I missing anything and is this a good plan or should I do something else? Thanks for the input. :confused:

when I store my truck I do the following, religiously:

1. start it once a week and let it run for about 10 minutes, with a few revs to clean the humidity out of the exhaust.

2. I get the tires off the ground, But I put jack stands under the suspension, not frame, On my truck if I put it under the frame the shocks are fully exposed and bilstein shocks are expensive if corrosion appears on the shock shaft and destroy's the seal

2.5 If I left the tires on the ground, flat spots will occur within a week or two.

3. I put Fuel stablizer in the gas tank, and I keep the gas tank at least 1/2 full

4. I put steel Wool in all the openings. Exhaust, Intake etc... don't want any critters getting in there, no mattr how well the garage is sealed.

5. I take my tonneau cover off. it is a soft cover, I leave it on the truck, but undue the latches so it sits in the bed. No need for it to stretch out over winter.

6. I count the days until the snow melts, the streets dry up a few rains have washed the salt away and I can drive it.
