Make sure you get a good ice scraper. Those little "cheap" looking ones that are just a scraper on a handle for usually under $2 work great (especially for the mirrors), the long handle ones suck for ice, but work good for pushing off snow. How are your tires? Bad tires and snow don't mix well. As others have said, go slow if you have to, you'll pass the people that were going 20+ mph faster than you later... when they're in a ditch.
If you get get into a few inches of snow/slush, go find a big parking lot. Make sure no one is around, or light poles, curbs, ect... Make some tight turns, see what it takes to get it to slide. The first snow with mine surprised me a little bit. I kept hearing how easy a dually will "float" on the snow. My back tires are "decent" but probably won't make it another winter. In 2-4" of slushy snow, I had no problems keeping up with traffic in 2wd. No weight in the bed. Just make turns slow. I did need 4wd twice, but both times it was to get up our driveway. (steep, paved, and covered in ice)
