How to move bed when off truck?

I am going to replace the supports (rusted) under the bed of the truck and cut out the inner metal fender where the rust starts on the wheel wells of the bed. Going to have to do some sandblasting and other messy work and would like to wheel it out of the garage when it gets nasty.

Any good ideas other then 4 dudes to move it in and out of the garage when it is flipped over ?

Use an engine lift to pull it off if you don't have enough people pull it off. I'd say maybe even ratchet straps if you had a way to rig overhead.

Four people and two 2x4x8s and it will be easy.
