As far as tires goes. I am currently running Xtreme M/Ts by the advice of the local forest workers. They love them on the forestry roads in winter. They say they are good on hardpack snow/ice and awesome in the deep snow. So far so good for me, on icey roads they steer/corner well and in the snow they are awesome. I ran A/T's on my Pickups for years and they are OK if you get lots of freezing rain and ice but if you get any amount of snow/slush they just don't have enough bite when it gets deep (just like mud). The Xtreme M/T's seem to have enough grooving in the tread blocks to have good manners on slippery roads. Other then that, the best ICE tire would be Blizzaks or the new Nokian Ice Radials, but I'm not sure if they make them big enough for the Jeep.
