I have a '96 with the 3.4 V6. The tires are Michelin LTX's. These trucks handle snow just fine. We just got through the 3rd snowiest winter on record up here.
I drive a Dump truck at work that has a plow in front and a salt/sand spreader in the rear. When we have a snowstorm I'm the first to be called and of course drive to work in my Tacoma on unplowed roads. Never had any problems. Busted through some pretty big drifts, had plenty of power.
