I got our 34XBR800 when it first came out from Tweeter as a surprise to my wife. Picked it up in my Ranger but knew I was going to be alone when setting it up in our home, which is a raised ranch.
I backed up the Ranger over the lawn to the front steps leading to the mid floor landing. I then used two 2x10s as a ramp so I could push the box up to the front door, then walked it on it's corners through the doorway. Inside was going to be more of a problem.
Now with it on the inside landing, the box just fit in the area in front of the stairs to the second floor. I had a bad back, so I had to be careful on this move. I've used dollies enough to know that was just not going to work. So the 2x10s came inside and were placed on the stairs, but it was too steep for me to be able to push or pull the box up that ramp. Time for the farm boy and engineer sides to merge.
I was able to place a 4x4 across the top stairs newel post and the doorway into the kitchen. Put a motorcycle tie down strap around the box and used a cable come-a-long to winch it most of the way up. So now it's sitting about 16 from the top of the stairs and no more room left with the come-a-long. And I still could not push it up.
After tying it off to the 4x4 with more motorcycle tie downs, I took a long commercial strap (like used on trucks or tractor trailers) and put it through the two windows in the wall on the opposite side to the stairs. From there I was able to attach the come-a-long and bring it up to the second floor. Now I could slide it into position in front of the stand.
Once out of the box, I grabbed mass quantities of the hard cover books that my wife had in her library. I was able to pick up one side of the TV, so I just blocked up the TV one side at a time with one layer of books, inching it up stair like the 2-3 until the TV was at the same height of the stand. Note - remember to take the slippery covers off the books.
Les came home later after it all was set up and sat in the kitchen where she could look sideways and see the TV. She had completed a wedding setup on that Saturday (she's owns a hair salon) at the bride's home and the father had just bought a 50 TV. Since we were talking about getting a new TV, she started to talk about the one she saw, remarking how something like that would never fit where we had our TV setup. As she said that, she turned to the TV location and just stopped in mid-sentence. Priceless.
Of course the conversation went whom did I get to install the TV. Glad she wasn't home to see the process.
