Canada = Winter so heres what i do.
Limited slip diff or a locker.
BFG (or similar) All terrain tires
Stock size for you is 225/70/15, buy 235/75/15's if you dont wanna go for a lift or anything. (wider=more surface area on ice/snow)
I dont use weight in the truck, makes things worse. Mainly because now you have to try and stop 3-400+lbs you added. Im ok with slow starts if i can stop faster. Most ppl just cant drive so they need weight. And yes theres a difference between operating an truck and driving it. :)
Take things slow, drive like its a drive test and you on ice. You'll be fine.
