Rated at 350 lb, so the piano was a bit over. The trip was about 1.5 miles of residential streets at 15 MPH with a chase car following. Also, the piano was pulled forward toward the tailgate using straps to minimize the leverage on the outside of the platform. But, yeah, even though it is a small piano, it was on the ragged edge of what's possible with that type of lift. I wouldn't have chanced it any faster or farther.

On the other hand, the lift can be really handy for transporting other things without the need for a helper or a fork lift. I've used it for an engine block, a large transmission, snow blower, etc.

So, you use it as a Jiffy Lift! Pretty cool idea!

Pretty easy to load up anything on my bed . Slammed flatbed ftw  . But you better have the crap strapped down tight

Back when i was gathering material for my garage build, i filled the back of the ranger over the bedsides with 10' 2x4's. don't remember how many, maybe 250?? 
I've never seen the rear end squat that low before, but it made it home the 20+ miles.

@Mike: I don't hate on anyone's ride. Everyone has a different need, taste, approach. The flat bed, for me, wouldn't make any sense because I don't haul anything (I just like driving a truck). My truck doesn't attract any kudos because it is a street queen (check my gallery and you will see what I mean). Plenty of chrome, polished aluminum and luxury additions. Since I don't paint my nice wheels with flat black paint, mine will never be a TOTM. LOL

@Terry: I have seen lots of Rangers loaded to the gills, way over their rated capacity and they just do the work without a complaint. I would say that yes, one could break his truck if he loaded it like that all the time, but as long as you take it easy, nothing bad should happen.

Not here, not yet. Jim is waiting until our membership is higher. I was referring to R-F and FRF. I never won at either of those sites. Wrong kind of truck to to attract votes. LOL

Mike like I always say as long as you like it is all that matters. I do not care what other people think about my truck, I drive it not them.

And that is why my truck is a street queen!  It's how I want it. :)
