Bed weight for gravel?

So when this thing hits washboard on gravel, It fishtails like crazy. is it worth messing with sandbags?

It's a truck. Better shocks and a bit of weight will help. I suggest slowing down a tad as well.

I just put mine in 4wd on gravel; it helps it stay stable at higher speeds. I've had mine over 100 on gravel roads in 4wd (no lift). I have a shell, which helps load the rear a little.

I suppose slowing down might be an option.
