Traction Control / Performance
I have a 2010 Silverado, it's only a 2 wheel drive but I still take it off road; i have a jeep that i use to pull me out if i get stuck. My truck does pretty good in the mud and even when I turn the traction control off by holding the button down, I lose power when I go through the mud, even if I'm flooring it...
Is this an engine performance issue? Or is there a way to completely disable the traction control?

Are you actually losing power, or just losing traction, and as a result, your engine isn't having to work as hard to turn the wheels.
Seems like a normal condition, as you're describing it... When you say "power loss" can you be more specific? For example, are you having a hard time keeping both rear wheels engaged?

My '09 works the same when in 2x4.
Along with traction control, we also have stability control. The traction control can be turned off, the stability can not.
I haven't looked for a fuse that could be pulled.Ray
