I'd grab another 2 people to make it that much easier other wise the veins in your forehead will start throbbing and it will look like your working

Smart Ass and I carried his ranger cab from the driveway into the garage but it had no doors or interior or windshield or roof and it was still kinda heavy.. I will also recommend getting 2 more.

I loaded a bare Yota cab and front clip on to a flat bed with one other person. The trick was to stand it up on one end, back the truck up to it, then tilt it down on to the bed. Push it in place and you are done. This only takes two people, since you are not fully picking it up, just standing it up.
A truly determined person can do this alone.

If you have another rig handy you can try this...


... but getting it into the back of another truck you'd need a few people I'd guess.

Id borrow a cherry picker, some chain, and some shackles. Less problems with throwing out your back that way.

I did an extra cab with everything in it but the seats onto a trailer. We ended up using a tractor and chain to position it, but 3 people carried it no probs.

3 young guys should have no problem at all IMO. I had me, 30 and weak, my bro in law and my old dad.

The cab was rusted out and filled with crap... just using the bed and frame to make a trailer.

Put my fullsize dodge cab on by myself. Lay it on its side, and roll it onto the frame... but then, a cherry picker helps getting it in the right spot.
