    Anything heavy. I have about 200lbs of concrete in 2 totes in the bed.

    Secure the loose weights!

    In an accident, they keep flying forward and can take your head off!

    I have 5 sandbags, which is 250Lbs, not a huge difference, but it's enough.
    They are loose now, getting a toolbox from a friend to put them in, along with my shovel, axe, and hi-lift.

    Never thought of that, I need to strap them in. Right now I have them in plastic tubs.
