Old water bed matress or air matress. Fill most of the way up with water. When spring comes pull the plug and drain. Don't have to load or unload. If you position them right they will not slide around in the back or your truck

I have a 2500 Ram too. Just throw a few sand bags back there, I have prob 6-8 back there, they do the trick. If I have trouble in 2 wheel drive I just throw it in 4, unless you don't have 4 wheel drive obviously then you can't do that.
