    I like to crawl around in the residentials I do, so usually have it in 4 low, which in the 2014 chevy, will disable the traction control and stability control.
    If you plow the same tight, back and forth type places in 4 wheel high, then in similar conditions , in 4 wheel low, you will find trans temp will stay much much lower running in 4 wheel low.
    If I were doing a larger parking lot or something, I would probably run in 4 wheel high.
    I also like shifting to the M, or manual selection to hold gears while moving up through the rpm range. Often wheel spin begins when the Trans shifts, and it can't be great for the clutches to be shifting while under the load associated with plowing.

    Just did exactly that last night. Good size parking lot. 4 wheel high.
    Pushing very very wet snow (actually raining on it as I was plowing) with the 8611LP in scoop mode. Truck would push it fine, but once I got some speed up she wanted to shift....then not want to push. So I used the manual mode to hold the RPM's and not let her shift.

    Newer GM's have 2 systems traction control and stabilitrak. If you push the button once it will turn off most of the TC, Even with TC off the stabilitrak system is still active. To fully turn off both systems press and hold the TC button for about 10 secs and the light will come on in the dash

    So true but heated blind spot mirrors on my chevy would be very nice when plowing lol

    I haven't turned TC or Stabilitrak off for plowing but will try it next time i plow.. I don't generally get much wheel spin because I'm heavily loaded with near 1 ton of weight in the bed

    On my 2015, I have to push and hold the TC button for about 30 seconds(it seems) to turn both T/C and the stabilitrak off..

    If I'm just turn TC off i push the button and release immediately
