More info?? 4wd? 4dr? 3 or 4-button controlled transfer case? Your conditions? The issues you are having? Manual or Automatic?

No matter how good the brakes and tires are, if you are on smooth, glazed-over, ice, there is no much you can do. Driving technique matters quite a bit also.

If you are really having trouble, perhaps you should get studded snow tires if your state permits them. Even if you cannot get studded tires, a good set of snow tires that have rubber formulated to stay softer and therefore have more friction with an icy surface might be what you need. Regular, non-snow tires get harder in the cold and there will be less friction force between the tire and the ice. I run Mud/Snow tires all year as I don't use my truck much during the non-cold months except for going to the woods or hauling my sailboat. I might get more wear than otherwise but I'm willing to live with that.

Remember, just because you have 4wd, as soon as you start moving sideways and your tires are not rolling, you are essentially a 2 ton hockey puck and will slide off in a straight line.
