I used to do that keep it from moving. But, I thought I read somewhere that because I'm raising the truck so much to connect hitch and then the WD bars, that it wasn't a good idea to engage the parking brake.

If that's not accurate, I'd rather to reinstate the practice of engaging the parking brake. I'm usually in the habit of engaging it anytime I'm parked, regardless of whether it's a hill or flat. Just a habit I've always had.
