So i play everything from drop c to e standard and i was wondering if i could put maybe like 10's on my guitar and set it up for drop D then just tune UP to E when i want to?
Would it ruin my neck?

The hell? It's one step up on one string. If he has a string that's doing a low D without being tense beyond belief, he'll have no problem bringing it up to E.

I use heavy bottom/skinny tops in E standard to drop C with no problems. I can't see setting it up for drop D harming it at all.

bu changing tunings often...stretching then loosening...will damage the strings

Yes, of course you can set a guitar up for Drop D and then just tune the 6th string up a step to E when you need to. People have been doing this since the dawn of the guitar. Setting the guitar up for Drop B with a set of .12s and tuning up to E Standard? Yeah, that would be a bad idea. Drop D to E? I do that three times a day and a set of strings lasts me a year. Christ, people.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
