used to do it by myself, but it involves a lot of climbing and wedging, which, with my current foot situation isn't really and option, so looking for a couple peeps who can stop by and move it over, and if possible, bolt it down, since ladders aren't a great idea right now either ;)

Ige, is it possible to park the rigs close to each other and for one person to slide from one to the other? If so, I might be able to swing by this evening

It would be very easy to move it yourself by simply parking next to the pig as Romer suggests and get a couple 2x4's or other scrap wood and with the boards on both racks slide from one truck to the other! My RTT is stored on my garage ceiling on a storage winch system upside down. I lower it, flip it up on end, dolly it to the back of my 80 and slide it up 2x6 runners I made for the purpose. It's handy to remove and install if you have someone with you but why wear out your "need help" points when it's not that bad to just use your noggen and figure out mechanical advantages and use those "need help" points when you gotta pull the tranny/t-case or other skull crushing, finger smashing, that's gonna leave a mark, things? If you wanna do it tomorrow on your lunch hour I could help!

EDIT.....Oops....I forgot about the foot

don't have racks, just bars, so hard to get boards to balance between them. i do park them next to each other and as i mentioned, i've done it alone, but it sucks and requires a lot of back and forth, climbing across the inside of the rig, then up onto a ladder. also, going from the pig to the 80 isn't bad, but the other direction means the rtt has to go up higher. just much easier for two people, and since i'm injured, i'd hate to someone injure themselves trying to help me. with two people, it wouldn't be bad at all. a small gap between rigs for a couple of step stools and they could pretty much just pick it up and push onto the pig.
