    i unloaded a d60 and a 14bolt out of a van by myself. I used a hoist on the d60. I managed to wrestle the 14ff out of the vans side door some how with no damage to myself and a small broken door piece on the rental van.

    It took three of us to put a loaded rear ten bolt in the back of my truck and four of us to put a loaded (well, minus one caliper but everything else was there) front ten bolt into the back of my truck. I unloaded both by myself and ended up dropping and dragging the front ten bolt to its final destination once I got it out of the truck. I seemed alright at the time (that rear ten bolt was a toothpick after lifting the heavy end of the front 10 bolt). The next morning I pretty much just fell out of bed I was so sore.

    I don't know what they weigh but that front ten bolt was a killer. It doesn't seem so heavy now that I've got the calipers, rotors, and hubs off but all I've done is lift one end at a time to get it on a stand.

    well, there was two of us taking them off, we took off the 14bff first...by hand...got it onto the ground.. put the wheels and tires back on, 38.5s" and rolled it over.. then put a skateboard under the heavy side of the front 10b, and pushed it off dragging the other tire which was broken from the bead...fun fun fun!! im gonna pay for it tomorrow...and it aint even my truck...

    Let me answer that question for yall... the why did it take two thing.... i also unloaded my D60 by myself out of a 76 blazer with 5 inches of lift. my back was the second and third person i should have had, and the driveway has a ncie dent in it... and my back hurt a lot.. and the chari it landed on almost taking my foot off no longer exists...

    it was fun though.
