    If your handy with tools it should be easy. I did mine with a little help from a mechanic buddy. took us a couple hours. I've only installed Westerns but im sure it isn't that much different.

    Doing the wiring and the mount shouldn't take you more than7-8 hours if its your first install.

    I just did my second install and probably had 5-6 hours in it all said and done.

    You can go to boss's website and they will tell you exactly how to do it. There is drilling involved.

    Not to hard if your handy with tools. There is some drilling, so make life easy on yourself and get a good set of step drill bits and it will work through the frame easy!

    yea on the 99-07's the only thing i dont like about doing one is the 12 or so holes you have to drill. it can be a bit time consuming but its not bad.

    Its very easy, make sure you drill 12 holes not 10 like my idiot dealer told me. You'll have to remove the bumper, headlights, grill, headlight mount bracket, & push beam. I had about 15 hours in it but i did alot of custom mods too. Built a bracket for the relays & harness plug. Changed out the shock and springs then added air bags in the back. Wiring harness is really easy too. My dealer wanted $500 for this too, stealers......
