Since the sled pulls the rear of the truck down weight behind the cab is pretty much useless.
The weight needs to be up front to be helpful.

it is best to have it up front, but if you have it in the front of the bed it is better than nothing that is for sure, there are some guys that have racks for weight on the front of there truck and in the front of the bed

While on the topic of weight. How close to the max weight do you try to get. My brother's truck is only 6500 stock but we are going to pull in the 8500lb class. We now have a weight bracket out front!!! but only about 700lb of weight. Should we stuff weight elsewhere to try to get to 8500?
I am assuming so but just wondering what other guys do.

All The Way To The Front Of The Box On The Right Side Unless You Have A Locker. Then It Wouldn't Matter But Your Passenger Rear Pulls More Then The Drivers Side. The More On The Front Of The Truck The More The Dig. That's An Awesome Payout In Platte City I Wish My Truck Would Be Able To Enter. ALSO THE CLOSER TO THE WIEGHT LIMIT THE BETTER. STICK THE POWER TO THE GROUND.
