4x4 Low in and out

Was at the beach this weekend and was normally running in 4 high. (No issues). Locked it in to 4 low and was going though loose sand for about 100 meters with no issuess. Then it felt like the truck was shifting in and out of 4 wheel drive. 4 low light was flashing. Shifted back to 4 high and had no further problems.
Any thoughts.

Didn't know we had a traction control switch. Was throwing sand like crazy in 4 high so I'm not sure if that's it.

Actually you're right. I forgot that the traction control automatically turns off when 4x4 is engaged. I have a button right above the back up alert on mine. I turned my TC off permanently through my sct though.

Not sure specifically, it was part of the lariat package on my truck. I used to turn it off every time I started the truck, then I got the SCT.
