    I could tell you the weight of a boss;
    I think it's 784 lbs

    That's the weight of an Ultra mount. I'm pretty sure a Uni-mount weighs less. Around 700 lbs. is a safe bet.

    I was kinda figuring 700 would be a good ballast.

    If you go to westerns website they will tell you the weight or better yet, if you tell them your truck and plow they will tell what thety think is the right amount of ballast.
