You can do that, and some people do. I have done it once, but found it very hard to get back in the truck when the time came. I would say do it this time until you get your hoist in the garage done. I ended up buying an engine hoist, which helps some, but in my longbed truck, the arm wasn't quite long enough and I still had to move it off the rails towards the rear of the truck until the arm would reach it. I haven't had to try it with the shortbed truck yet.

I thought I was wrong once, but I was wrong!
