Re: Moving a steel cradle
if it is as sturdy as it should be, you are not going to muscle it very far at all and certainly not very high off the ground. If it is rusted badly, you may be able to jounce it around.
My guess is it is longer and wider than your tacoma bed is, so it will likely not fit.
you will likely need a trailer and tie downs and a winch and some 4x4 timbers to get it loaded, unless the yard has equipment. or a pair of bottle jacks, a lot more 4x4s and an afternoon to jack it up, back the trailer under it and then jack it down.
best of luck...
