Snow and my frontier....

I have a 2003 frontier crew cab lb auto 4x4, I want to find a good set of tires for snow/mud around factory size or very close. I also want to lift it, probably an inch or two. Not the full 3in i did on my 98 (it was a monster in the snow...).

This is my daily driver so I want it to be able to go down the road at highway speeds (sometimes 75mph). It seems to be lacking power as it is not being supercharged...

I was planning on a/t revos and a shackle/ torsion crank for 1-2in safely.
I would like to do a limited slip/ locker in the rear too

(truck spins both a lot and 2 very little, when i lifted the rear and spun one tire the other didnt spin but the driveshaft did...? maybe it does have limited slip)

here is a pic of my 1998 after the winch last year... ( it did awesome in the snow with no traction lockers/limited slip....)

here in nebraska we had well over 3 feet of snow on the ground in omaha for over a month, that was a blast pulling people in ditches out, I even winched a fed ex truck out once..

You are not going to want a locker in the snow. It will want to push you straight ahead on turns. Also after it locks after a turn it is hard to handle. You'd want limited slip if anything. I too have a set of General Grabbers AT2s and they are great in the snow. 19" of snow in a stock Suzuki Samurai. I was pushing it with the front bumper. Never got stuck though.
Thats (bfg k/o) one of my top 3 tires im looking at, a little pricey and tread depth is lacking in my opinion... but snow/icy conditions look great with it...
Go look at Grabbers AT2s the tread pattern is very similar but the compound seems a little softer. The price is also much more reasonable.
you get what you pay for.
Hate to tell you i've owned both and the Grabbers are just as good if not better than BFG A/T KOs. They don't crack over time like BFGs do. Wet traction also seems to be better too.

If you want to pay extra for the name go for it.
