Does the truck have snow plow prep package? I would be scared for my transmission (assuming it is an automatic) when running a tune while plowing. I would run it in stock mode.

Hmm...well after getting stuck in the snow I'd say you want a tune of some sort on there, but it will be hard on the trans. Stock tune has to really spool to spin my 35's, but my 140 tune made it alot easier to get moving.

I have a 65hp tow tune that I think I would use if plowing...Or call your tuner and get their advice?

I would call a tuner and ask what they recommend. I would think a tow tune would be best for it a little more power but not too much.
