Question Storing a Ranger

I have a 2002 Ranger, 2.3L/stick shift, 120k miles, running fine in all respects. I've recently taken it over to our summer place in New Mexico, where it will be in storage status more or less during the winter months. It's in a locked, unheated garage, and I have a trickle charger on the battery and fuel stabilizer in the gas tank. No freeze danger. Is there anything else I should do to keep it healthy during the times when it may not be run for 2-3 months at a time?

Sounds like you just about covered all bases. I'd suggest changing the oil before storing it, then changing it again when you're going to put it back into service. Me personally, I'd remove the battery and trickle charge it on cardboard on the floor.
