Tire/wheel/lift combo? for "work truck"

Looking for suggestions/recommendations on tires/wheels/lift/brush guard/skid plate etc I'll need to transform my 2002 7.3L CC 4x4 dually into an effective off road work truck, primarily for small time logging/farming.

From another thread:

Plan on hauling/towing moderately heavy, mainly logs, some rock and gravel. Conditions will be mainly Mississippi mud, clay, forest and back roads, little highway high speed. I see the need to be able to climb over small trees, thru small depressions. Thus I'm thinking several inches of lift, a brush guard, skid plate and bigger than stock tires.

Note - I'm not concerned about "pretty" or chrome. This is to get the job done.

Since my "off road" work will primarily be during cooler weather (September thru April) I'm thinking I might keep a set of road tires for the summer and put the work tires on for fall/winter/spring.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
