why on Jackstand's?

Just get a cut-off switch and hit the switch for the winter. That's what I did but I closed the truck and can't get back in it. LOL

wellllll...if it floods...you don't want it sitting in water....and some people don't want their tires being frozen all winter, then warming up...could mess with the rubber I guess.
My buddy puts his EVO up on stands because his garage sometimes gets flooded with 3" of water and doesn't need the evo sitting in water over night!

Yup..... the jackstands are so I do not get flat spotted tires. And so I can easily access the undercarridge for spring cleaning .
