    This weekend Lash helped me removed the tub from dads 71 FJ40. After getting it off I would have never realized how HEAVY it was. For those of you who have done this what type of carrier or holders have been made to work on or move the tub for prep work? Currently now its sitting behind the rolling chassis & would love to be able to move & work on it...any pictures or ideas of stands built for this would be appreated.

    I used some steel saw horses that they sell at Home Peephole that are rated at 1200 lbs. Worked great.

    i just lifted mine up with my hands little by little with my wife putting pieces of wood under the saw horses until i could roll out the chassis and that is where it stayed until i put it back on.
