Storing for winter?

Open for discussion lol
Winter almost here in Va. When I go to put away the 5ver for the next 4-5 month's, do I put Jack stands underneath it to get the tires up off the ground or not. I is parked on a level gravel pad. This is just something I'm kicking around. As of now, just think I will put the rear jacks down, and take some of the pressure off the tires, and cover them.
Any thought's?

That's what I do and I always park mine with the tires on boards to get them off of the ground. Cover the tires to protect them from the sun, the boards under the tires keep the ground from drying out the tires. Hope this helps!!!

I have always parked mine on boards. I feel that getting them off the surface is part of the preventive maintance for tires. Covering them is always a good idea during the winter months. I would keep the pressure up on the tires and not worry about raiseing them off the ground.

I park mine on 2X8's because I park on grass and it sinks down if I don't
