Engine lift... rent or borrow?

Does anyone know of a place where I could rent or borrow an engine lift? These fullsize axles are HUGE and well... I'm not. The previous owner and I managed to wrestle them into my truck, but I don't have any big friends at home... my brother is about my size, and my dad has back problems. Is there a place I could rent or borrow an engine lift to get them out of my truck? Is there something else I could possibly rig up? If anyone in DFW (Plano/Dallas/Frisco area) has got one I could borrow for a day I'd be much obliged!

2 2x4 about 6ft long and rope. let the axle slide down to the ground while tied to the rope. also its best to have an ancor on the truck for the rope to controll its decent. Thats how i did it in my Centurion C350

haha yeah those 10.25s are pretty big too! Unfortunately the axles aren't gonna get to go under the project truck anytime soon. I got such a good deal on them I couldn't pass it up, but I don't have the money to get gears and lockers and rebuild kits for the axles just yet!
