    I have never done a Wide-Out but I did two MVP's this year. The first one took me and a buddy prolly 24 hours start to finish, but I read the instructions severel times for each step and really took my time. The second one only took about half that time. Its not bad but you will need a second pair of hands for a few steps. Oh and an impact or cordless impact will be your best friend on this project, it will cut down the time considerablly. Good luck

    Holy s***! Was that with an impact? Was there anything tricky or just lots of parts to assemble? Does anything come together? or all seperate?

    I take it you have to install all the hoses and fittings? Nothing extreme?
