So, what is your view of putting it up on stands and letting it "idle forward" with the car in gear for some time. Won't that warm up the tranny? Then the only thing not moving will be the front wheels.

If I just let it sit untouched over winter, what is the potential damage to the seals from drying out?

I certainly don't want to take my car out on the roads in the winter to warm it up, even if the roads are dry. Too much salt residue.
