The other advise I'd offer is to follow ALL the directions, even the ones that seem like you can ignore them (like disconnecting the radiator before you lift the cab, etc.) We spent alot of time sorting out the fan shroud after we lifted the cab without disconnecting it.
that said it is a LOT easier when you dont have a whipple in the way

I'll be doing mine tomorrow with lots of helping hands from the STR-Offroad club members.

The instruction manual that comes with the PA kits is very detailed and has decent pictures - they aren't great, but they're good enough to show you what needs to be done.

I was always told work smarter not harder, soaking them is a good idea
