Ballast in work truck!?

    Hey all!,

    New guy here. Just bought a 7.5' Western Pro Ultramount. Have been reading about ballast for the rear of the truck. Here's my question: I have a 2002 Silverado SB LS 6.0 with full length rail mounted tool boxes that weigh about 300#'s each loaded with tools and I also have an aluminum lumber rack I hand fabricated that weighs about 120#'s. Do I need anymore weight?

    Thanks, Jeff
