No damage will be cause to your truck. However if you're using T/H on slippery road you may loose control due to grade braking.

Not using T/H will not engage the torque converter on 1st through 4th, which I think is better that way if you're unloaded. A tranny always works betters when it slips a little bit in the snow with an empty truck. That's my opinion.

No difference except the rear tires might slide when the tranny downshifts if you are on snow packed roads. The question though is: why would you want to ??

I think grade braking may cause loss of traction

I have never used the T/H mode in the winter but would it act the same with the ABS system.
