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 http://www.amazon.com/Battery-Tender-021-0123-Junior-Charger/dp/B000CITK8S/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=IQXNKDZCW1XA3&colid=DXDNEI05K9OO
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!
