Fill something a container you hang up, with water (easy to empty).

Or like someone said yesterday on the chat (Richie Thomas) fill it with sand.

Or use those (never used) workout manuals.

I mounted a truck battery above the hitch, between the fenders

You can also add fluid to your tires, most use windsheild washer antifreeze

tanks for the credit thunder Smile my fat but is over the rear of mine so its good, im adding weight to the front of mine, i built the front bumper out of 3"x4"x36" square tubing and filled it with sand so it wouldnt flip,
you could always use wheel weights, or and chopperhead said add fluid. or build a bracket on the back where you could mount large diameter pvc pipe and fill that with sand or whatever, that way it could be emptied or used for storage

On my neighbors tractor we bolted about 100 pounds of old 5lb dumbbell's to the hitch plate so we could pop wheelies. You could bolt some under the frame or inside the frame

A bit late to the party, but for future reference... My 26-12-12 ag lug rears are weighted and foam filled weighing in at 150# ea. These are on my Sears Suburban 12. I just(accidently) pulled a '94 Bronco in park almost 6ft. before I realized it wasn't in neutral. Oops!

I filled my front tires with water to help it climb better, you could do the same with the rears. You could also add an extra feul cell to the rear using feul line cut offs n each tank so your rear is there if you need it but keepin weight on the tires till then. I put an atv rack on mine and put weight on it but bein so high up it counter acts the water filled fronts. Try to keep the weight low and centered over your transaxle.

if you live in a cold climate, use washer fluid so it wont freeze. thats what "Billstmaxx" on youtube puts in his John Deere 2720 and 110TLB backhoe
