I've used a furniture dolly, the kind with 4 casters and a square wooden
frame. The pan fits nicely in the dolly and it is fairly easy to wheel
it around and maybe even roll it up ramps (with the assistance of a
block and tackle.

I was saying that I did have tie downs for once the motor was in.   My
concern is getting it in there :)  

Thanks for the tire idea, I really like that.  I am trying to figure out
I can do it with a ramp and maybe a movers dolly.  Another idea is to
see if
I can roll the engine stand up to the back of the truck and lift it up
few inches left (maybe jacking the front up) then push the engine into
back.  After that remove the stand and scoot the motor into place.

You will not be able to lift it on your own unless you are VERY strong.
Better plan on having help.

Also plan on some type of plastic painters sheet to put under it so it
doesn't leak anything on your carpet.

We usually take an old tire (without rim) to put motors on.

And lastly, how would any of us know if you have tiedowns in your suv.
you thought about looking?  All said with a smile.
