    First I would check all steering and suspension for loose or worn components and replace as necessary. Second I would get rid of the 10.5's for plowing and get some tall narrow aggressive snow tires. If you don't you will probably have to learn to live with the problem.

    I had the same problem with a Toyota years ago. I had it lifted with 33X10.5X15. I was driving in the snow one day, only a few inches, but the next thing I new, the truck was heading to the other side of the road. Thankfully no cars were coming at me, but I did end up off the road. I was able to get out, but the tires were wide enough to ride the snow, instead of narrower and cutting through the snow.

    It can be very dangerous, so be careful.
