3.6 Conversion (day 1) how to get a 500 lb. craft off a 3 foot high truck bed.

Could hardly sleep last night, like a kid at Christmas. Ryan (Surflver) was kind enough to send an email asking how my engien drop went and asked if there was anything he could help with. Little did he know he would be on a trek to LAX through Customs, and Freight and helping me bring the new '93 964 to its new home.

The whole process took 1 hour 20 minutes from the time we picked up the papers from the shipping broker until the crate was loaded in the truck

If you have to go through customs, do it on a Saturday, and listen to the questions the inspector is asking the person in front of you. Yes Sir, no sir, yes sir, and a VERY carefully placed bit of humor made Customs simple. It was not so simple for the womon bringing in something from Morraco or the other woman importing dogs from Oz . . . they'll be there a while.

So the problem is. . how do two guys get a 500 +lb crate out of a truck bed over 3" high.
