    Do all you guys put your trucks in tow/haul mode (OD off) when the plow is on?

    I do, but I want to get a consensus...

    Sometimes. I never make it to 4th gear anyway so does it really matter?

    Sometimes I do but not all the time. I think it would only make a difference if you get to third gear going fast enough to lock the torque converter.

    It won't make a difference really on the 03-05s it just locks out 4th gear and gives you 3rd gear torque converter lockup

    I use it. Especially for long subdivision streets that we plow.
