Put weight in the bed, dont accelerate too quickly, if you start sliding take foot off gas and turn the truck in the direction you want to go, take it easy, especially on ice.

Oh and I got a deal on Bridgestone winter duellers so I put them on my old factory rims. What a difference. I put 100 miles on in a blizzard yesterday and the pickup never once felt like it was about to lose it. Never thought winter tires were worth the money, but I am sold now.

Some valid points here, but I still cant believe nobody said what I am about to say. TIRES make a big difference. From what I can recall are you running the crapyear wranglers? Get you some BFG AT's and that will help a lot. Chains are another thing that will help. Especially with some weight in the bed!
