The 6 ft bed weighs 250lbs at the most. My son and I lifted mine off easily. 6 bed bolts (T55, I think), 3 filler neck screws (about 1/4in), one tail light plug (rear of the bed, drivers side on my 02), and some lifting. The lift is rather high if you have mud flaps on your truck, but not excessive.

It is very easy to remove,but if you want to leave the bed in place, you can just tilt it by removing 4 bed bolts (leave 2 on one side) and lifting one side. Prop it up securely, or you may become the meat in a metal sandwich. You will still have to disconnect lights and filler.
