i unloaded both my axles myself.. i pulled one end out layed it on a board on the ground and then tipped them up on end and leaned them onto a dolly/trailer. it sucked alot..and was scary. but my dumbass was doing it alone



geting it in the truck we used a bobcat though. cause lifting up is alot harder then bringing them down

Same here... only when I was unloading mine I put one end of a rolling floorjack. That way I only had to lift one end and it move around quite nicely. Was still heavy but made things a lot easier.

Plus when I went to put it on jackstands just had to jack the one side up and heft if over.
