Trucks are designed for heavy-duty applications but despite this fact, they are no match for extreme snow and ice covered roads. To improve traction, what most truck owners do is to put bags of sand, cement, mud, etc. just to get the rear heavy enough to avoid sliding or slipping while driving over icy roads.
