    Back didn't take too much of a hit. Instead of loading the thing into the K5, I have use of a trailer that sits a little lower to the ground. Then I lowered the tailgate onto a jackstand and just muscled the thing on there, really had the help when the thing almost tipped over, that enabled the lead side enough elevation to get onto the tailgate. Then when I unloaded it, I did the same jackstand trick, then use the rope as some god-forsaken rednecked pulley system to ease the thing out. Only pain I had was when I drove the die into my shoulder and drug it across said shoulder.
