Snow in a sport

So I'm pretty sure I'm getting a sport possible sahara ether way it's going to be a used one. I love the snow and would love to play in it and be able to drive in it. What are my best options for tires and aftermarket parts that will allow comfortable DD driving and great snow traction even in the REALLY deep stuff? Thanks for any advice as I await financials to fall into place and the snow to start

And I will be in Colorado snow if it matters.

For tires you cant go wrong with BFG AT's. Had em on my TJ and worked great in the snow.

Check out GoodYear Wrangler Duratracs, I bought a set for my TJ and my Silverado.They look great, are not very noisy on the road and have good reviews for winter conditions.

Goodyear silent armors are also supposed to be very good in the snow. If I hadn't gotten such a good deal on rubicon take-offs, they would have been my next tires.

You might want to take a look at the Nokian Vatiiva MT's I run them and they are great in the snow and have good street manners. I use them year round, but I would not recommend them for a lot of rock usage.
