    find a nice hitch mount spreader for sale. you can go on craigslist and find something that will hold about 500 lbs of rock salt. there are some for sale on here also. you dont need a big one, you will just have to get out of the truck more often at 3am when it is 10 degrees out with a wind chill of -15 and fill her up. it will help you stay awake. good luck.
