I'll say one thing for the traction control....it did prevent wheelspin that
would perhaps have buried the truck even deeper. Once I shoveled most
of the snow out from under the plow frame and put boards under the front
wheels and sand under all four wheels, I backed it out of the snow
But maybe it would have pulled out of the snowbank on the first try if I
had turned the traction control off.
