It wasn't in storage, I was actively using it. Now I've only had it for about a week when it started acting up. I literally turned it off to move a trailer to hook up to it and I wanted to go turn it back on again it wouldn't start. That's when I started swapping parts like the battery and the starter. It's strange to me to think that the engine would seize up, because it was running fine then suddenly stopped. I thought no big deal, throwing new starter in a battery on it and I'll be off again with it. But that's not how it went down. I tried pulling it today while in gear and the engine won't turn, I also tried jacking up one tire and putting it in a low gear and turning the engine, and that didn't work either. I guess it could be seized, that just seems like a strange thing to happen to me
