I assume from this question that your vehicle is 2WD? (many 4WD owners don't bother with additional ballast).

First off, stating the obvious: You will get better performance from good winter tires than by adding any amount of weight.

That said, take your truck to a scale and weigh both front and rear axles. Add weight until rear (drive) axle load is at least the same as the front axle load. Once this is achieved, adjust your tire pressures accordingly.
