I don't think the vertical comes off very easy. I worked MD80 overhaul and never saw it done. The B737 is just 6 bolts and lift it off. The horizontal can come off pretty easy with a crane. It is only connected with the jackscrew mount up front and the pivot bolts at the rear, plus the elevator control cables. and tail heat duct.
