Hello! Just this past January I got a '18 z71 ! I had a lifted '79 Chevy Blazer when I was younger and loved it! Now I found a new Love! Looking for mods that don't void the warranty! Thank y'all in advance for any advice and help!

From page 270 of the 2018 Silverado owners manual (which you should read)

AUTO (Automatic Four-Wheel Drive) : Use when road surface traction conditions are variable. When driving in AUTO, the front axle is engaged, and the vehicle's power is sent to the front and rear
wheels automatically based on driving conditions. This setting provides slightly lower fuel economy than 2 high. Do not use AUTO mode, if equipped, to park on a steep grade with poor traction such as ice, snow, mud, or gravel. In AUTO mode only the rear wheels will hold the vehicle from sliding when parked. If parking on a steep grade, use 4 high to keep all four wheels engaged.
