I'm no rocket scientist, but 100 pounds over the axle vs 100 pounds next to the tailgate seems like it would make a difference. It would move your center of balance rearward. Like someone stated before, with your center of balance moved back, it seems that it would make the ass of your truck more prone to whipping around easier/ faster. And the more weight you put next to the tailgate, it'd seem you'd get more of an "ass whipping" (at least compared to putting an equivilant amount of weight over the rear wheels). Am I totally off in this logic?mikeg281 said:Leverage has nothing to do with it no matter where you put that 100lbs it's still going to be 100lbs

5 gallon buckets work nicely...thats what I do and a little extra weight with bags or a 1' square of concrete I havetsl90 said:I throw 4 40lb bags of top soil or manure in the back. Next spring I'll use it in the yard. Not sure what I'd do with the sand.
I've thought that it might be worth it to get four 5gal buckets with lids which would make it much easier to take in and out.
