I partially disagree. Since we are talking about snow/ice situations here. If the weight is place over the right rear, only that tire will feel the majority of the weight. And in a traditional rear, this will partially defeat the purpose of adding weight since this type of rear will deliver power to the tire with the LEAST amount of traction. And by placing the weight only on one side you may actually be lifting weight off of the left rear, effectively decreasing traction.theelcaminofactory said:Placing them behind the rear axle on the passenger side of the vehicle (drive wheel unless posi) will give you the most traction.
well i have a rubber bedmat so i guess i'm gonna throw that engine block in there!77Mino said:yeah weather here has been wierd, monday was a record high 73 rained tuesday afternoon then snowed all night.... 73 one day 29 the next..... oklahoma always has strange weather
and as for using an old engine block it works good but if you dont want to scratch up your bed i would sugest getting about 4 sandbags then putting the block on top of them, not the paper bags though
It may be just another urban myth but I have heard stories of pickups flipping when guys had the roll sand "roll" to one side of the bed. Having enough of them unsecured in the bed and maybe it could happen??? 8OMost construction supply stores such as Home Depot sell 50lb bags of sand that come in a tube shape in a burlap type bag
