Default Finally got my bed weighed down

While at Menard's for a shovel I got 3 of those 70# tube sand bags to toss in my bed. got it right against the wheel wells. I still spin out with too much gas pressure, but I do notice less fishtailing. 3 bags is 210#'s that should be enough, right?

Hell, that's true with any empty bed and dry roads, we all know how thirsty both the sixes are!
