I have seen too much 50/50 go slushy and worse so now use 60/40 for those cold snaps.
The 73 Blazer blower motor upgrade (seimens 102 at napa) is 'well' worth it! Puts out more on low than the stock one did on high. My wife and I recently did a 1200 mile run at -35 average and didn't need gloves or hats on, it was soo nice.
You aren't going to like those 12.5's much in the snow. You might want to think on tall skinnies for the snow The wide tire gets up on top and will pretty much go anywhere, just very slowly. When I had 10.5" muds on it lost grip about 45 mph in the snow, too slow so the transports were always passing me and that is 'no' fun. They are rolling whiteouts... When I went to a BFG 33x9.5 that has a 7.5" tread width, my winter traction went 'way' up. It will track up to 65 mph for sure and can easily keep up to the big rigs now. Feels real solid at 50-60 mph for sure.
