    Hi,
    I know that this probably has been beaten to death but I was wondering I have a 2007, 5.7, 4X4. I am trying to make sense of all this traction control stuff. I know the 2007 is different than the 2008+ models. I drive in a lot of deep snow and I was wonder what is the best combination for traction control and 4 wheel drive for a 2007 would be in deep snow?

    Thank you

    i'd also like to know what others do.

    I've been playing with it the last few days here in the denver snow. My apartment complex sucks at plowing and the area around me mostly faces north and sees no sun, so everything that does manage to melt turns into ice overnight.

    the truck sucks when it's parked on ice and traction control is on, literally wont move. I had to rock back and forth the other day with only 6 inches of room in front of me, but eventually managed to slip out. that was with trac on and the truck had been sitting for the weekend when we got dumped on so it was in 2wd.

    tried later traction control off (still 2wd), by holding it for 3 seconds (not just one push) and it seemed to do better.

    I don't like when electronics take over my driving.....

    I usually just disable the first set. Check out the recovery area

    Your truck should shift into 4WD while parked, mine does.
