sled pulling in tow/haul mode?

would having tow/haul engaged be advantageous in anyway while the sled is hooked?

no it wouldnt , let the trans work like it should and is designed to do, people do sled pulling several different ways , low 4x4 or high , second gear or low, i myself have had the best luck in 4x4 low , trans in drive not overdrive , and let the trans do its thing , upshift and downshift as load determines , but thats my opinion, im sure there will be more

i would recommend 4lo3rd, do a boosted launch, the tow/haul wont come on in low.
