Snow and Lift

I drive in the snow a lot, over passes, to the mountain, and just around town. Will a 3 inch lift compromise how my truck performs in the snow?

It shouldn't....

With 3" of lift, it should be virtually the same. Now...if you get bigger and more aggressive tires - you should be more capable in the snow.
**Pending the type of tires and the type of snow**

The three inch lift should help in the snow. That's why I am lifting my new taco, I am tired of getting high centered in deep snow. It should also be easier to get the shovel underneath the truck when it does get high centered. In town, there should be no difference, unless you slide into a ditch, at which point you could roll easier.
