    Well I have put 200lbs in there before when I had too, the issue is if you were to have an accident it could fly up and smack you...not a good deal.

    I used a product called Cattle Grip, basically limestone mix and this also helped when I got it stuck. Man I don't miss that, no Mustang goes anywhere in the snow unless it has a set of Blizzacks on the rear.

    When I lived in Rochester I used to put 100 lbs of sand in the trunk, and this worked well. I also had bridgestone blizzak snow tires (awesome, night and day difference), and I used to bypass the supercharger in the winter. With these mods and a manual tranny it was actually a decent car in the snow (and we're talking about 95+ inches per winter).

    1 bag of concrete mix, and Blizzaks on all 4 corners. No problems at all.
