Post How much weight do I need? 
Hi,
I bought a 98 K1500, earlier this summer, first truck ever owned. So its a half ton truck(not heavy half), but the guy I bought it from had put on a 1 ton suspension under it.
So my question is, for winter to have some weight over the axle, how much weight would I possibly need, if any? I was thinking of getting some sand bags, but dont know how much to get?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
thank you in advance

My heavy half, I have heavier suspension on the rear axles too. I have 10 20 kg bags of sand at the front of the box. 20 kg = 44 lbs. That is 440 lbs of sand bags. That seems to help. On icy streets I still use 4wd, otherwise it is hard to get going.
