Only a couple of reasons I could think of doing that is:
You are getting too high of fuel mileage and want to lower it
you ALWAYS tow heavy and go downhill all the time...
the engine/tranny combo does a Great JOB without needing tow/haul....
but really, clue me in....

This is a utility truck, runs at (or over) gross weight all the time. I like the way the transmission shifts and downshifts in the tow/haul setting; saves on brakes. The only time I don't have it on is when I forget to turn it on.
Mileage? What mileage?

JohnBoyII, no flame intended, believe it or not but some people do buy these trucks to work with. I have 2 550's that I would like to have it set as default. They both tow or haul heavy loads all the time.
