Anybody else de-tune for winter?

Think I'm gonna de-tune this winter. The truck just has too much power with a tune to be comfortable on wet and icy roads during winter here. It feels much more surefooted with the stock tune.

Good idea. When I lived in Idaho, and then near Tahoe, I felt that detuning was mandatory after the first ice.

Well if the right foot is just too heavy, it's probably a good idea.
