    What do you have in your ballast box that makes it to light? From my view and looking at my stuff, putting those two things together would be way to heavy and cumbersome.

    I have my Ballast Box filled with sand, probably about 400+ lbs. The BB weighs 600, together that would be 1,000 lbs which would be a better offset to heavy lifting. I don't have the tires filled and don't have wheel weights. I suppose that I could add weight that way.
