Thanks for all the great details.

I'm up for my first 30,000 mile service on my '08.

Should I change the coolant, ATF, diff oils, and brake fluid now, or when I go to stat the car up again in 2 years? (With that - I need to drive the car 400 miles to where it will be stored - is it important to do the fluid changes before or after that point?)

Should I let the car sit for 2 years, or should I have it started up a couple times a year and have it run for 30 minutes and driven up and down the street?

The car will be stored indoors and the cover only removed/re-installed around 4 times - is it necessary to get a $150+ cover or can I get a cheaper one of around $50?

Will a cheap $8 trickle charger from Harbor Freight work or should I get a nicer one like this
Battery Tender?Battery Tender?

Should tires be parked on wood to eliminate moisture coming up or not?

Will baking soda work instead of charcoal or desiccant?

Thank you very much!
