Truck Ballast??

Hey guys, I was wanting some opinion on whether or not to put sand bag in my truck this winter. Does it really do all that much? Am I just wasting gas? I have a 4x4 chevy 1500 and put 4 sand bags in the bed last winter, but idk if it did anything. What do you think?

Thanks
Ryan

Yes it helps. Just make sure its over the axle, not up to the cab.
