    The local U-Pull-A-Part is running a Labor Day special. For $35 you can have whatever you can carry out. I called to see if they would allow a dolly. They said no. I would have to physically carry it. So....my question is how much does a 14 bolt, complete with brake drums, weigh? I don't think I'll be carrying anything out that weighs twice as much as I do. /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Not sure how much exactly but even with out the hubs and drums I can barely pick up one end to put on a cinder block to work on it. It took 3 of us to get it out of the truck and in to the garage with everything on it.

    Two guys could carry it out, just park close to the door. Or, you could grab it by the ebrake cable and drag that sucka out of there and leave pretty marks on their floor /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
    I guess if you get a piece of card board and put it under the drums, you could drag it out. I think they would rather you do that.

    I believe they are closer around 400 lbs. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    I shipped a few of them in completely covered wood crates and they weighed around 525 lbs.

    I have been to a yard where they had a special of "pick, pull and carry." The one I went to required you to be able to CARRY the part(s) in your OWN arms or hands, nobody else can help you, and all you had to do was step over the gate line and drop it.

    If you are serious about getting a 14FF, seriously consider taking a short tow strap, like a tree saver strap, and have another buddy help you drag the rear to the gate and then tie the strap around the big hubs on each end. Try and carefully pick up the axle to where you can support it just enough to walk about 2 or 4 feet over the gate line and then drop it. You and your buddy can load it from there. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    You could strip the brakes clean and leave the drums and all. Then just setup disc.

    if the thing is complete hub to hub 400-450 pounds wouldnt surprise me at all. If they will let you do it, ditch the drums, them big b@stards weigh a ton. Even without them tho, you'd have to be a very large man indeed to move it out by hand.... then again, if u can somehow manage to do it, you'll get massive amounts of CK5-forum cool points from all of us! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/wink.gif just make sure to post pics so we actually believe it! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Does it need to be carried off the ground? Strap it to a backpack frame and drag it out. Wear a truss above your package, though.

    I recall reading in one of the 4x4 rags the 14 bolt fully dressed was about 530 lbs...

    Those 14bff are freakin heavy. Have at least you and 2 other people to help. When I got my 14bff back from the gear setup me and a buddy of mine carried it about 40 ft. That was a long 40 ft. We took it from the back of the pickup and walked it down my driveway. We each had a drum, and afterward we where pretty tired as that thing is massive. I would guess it weighed around 500lbs drum to drum. (keep in mind that I am 6'4" &amp; 265lbs &amp; my buddy is 6'1" &amp; 265lbs) A word of advice. Have a pickup with a low bed height and get some big friends to help.

    Wasnt sure but could you roll it out? I do it all the time just find to 8 lug wheels/tires and when you get to the gates just pick one side up at a time a trow it over the line. Just though I try. -max

    Just remember, NOTHING is worth injuring your back for! 14-bolt rearends can be had almost anywhere for $150 if you look around. Is it really worth the risk of permanently injuring yourself for money? NO WAY! Be smart and save your money to buy one when you can get a hoist or enough friends to help and keep your back healthy. Wheelchairs aren't fun and I know!

    The wheelchair comment has me thinking. Get a friend with a wheelchair to carry one out on his wheelchair. If they don't let him do it, it's an ADA violation and he could sue the pants off them.
