first timers? all day... seriously... remember use a torch on the cab bolts and impact off the bolts they will come off extremely easy that is the biggest thing you will fight with if you don't heat them... another things the rear bumper brackets can be not flared out enough to slip over the frame. sometimes you have to bend them out a little after there mounted to the bumper...

It took me and my buddy Kyle less than 6 hours our first time, but we are also both mechanics for a living and I have two rollaways, a torch, and enough airtools for a small store so we have a bit of an advantage over most. It really shouldn't take all that long though man, the hardest part to me was the damn tow hooks on the front, the tranny cooler is far beyond in the way of the passenger side tow hook and I lost a lot of skin on that thing.
