Sand Bags For Winter

My old man is looking for those long sand bags that you put in the bed for winter. Not sure if anyone uses them, cant seem to find them locally or just not looking at the right places. I have not looked on the net yet, anyone got a brand or where to find them???????????

Do you have Ace Hardware stores? It's called Quikrete Tube Sand so you should be able to find it at Lowes or Home Depot.

Just don't be afraid to slow down or use your 4wd I can't tell you how many ppl I know that have done major damage to vehicles cuz they are not used to driving is such conditions. If you're careful you shouldn't have a problem.

Yeah I think those water bladder deals cost somewhere in the realm of $400? Or something equally as rediculous
