    Hello everyone. I have a few greehorn questions

    1) I have a 1992 F-350 flatbed dually. Wondering how much ballast to put in the back. I think it was originally bought as a commercial truck becuase it has around 5 helper springs and on the door jam it said bought incomplete. Would this affect how much weight i shouldp put back there? Im also running a 9' Sno-Way Predator up front if that factors into the equation at all.

    2) How are duallys in the snow? Are they worse becuase they have more surface area

    3)How much extra are you supposed to charge for salting and sanding? I was thinking 50% of the driveway price? or is that way to high

    Thanks for your help !
