Certainly. Although plowing snow with the automatic is a pain. You need
to be in low range for the power, but then reverse is s-l-o-w. With the
amount of backing up you do in small lots and driveways, this is a major
annoyance. If you are going to plow snow, get a manual 4-speed with a
granny-gear first, and plow in high range.

The full-time 4WD Chev truck has a center differential. Absolutely. The
center diff is locked in the "locked" positions of the range selector lever.
