It's not hard but it's time consuming if you've not tried it before. I'd read up on it first. If you don't have access to a factory manual go with a Chilton. It's the lesser of 2 evils VS Haynes.

I started to a while back on my 94, then came to my senses and paid a friend mechanic to do it. Why? Cause I'm one of those that has left over stuff in my hand when I'm done! LOL

If you do decide to dive in go with Fel Pros High end set. It comes with upgraded gaskets including the valve cover set.

Well if you lived closer we could tag team it as mine is also needing a intake gasket set. I've done intake gaskets before just never on the 4.0L. I was going to change mine last month then I started to look at everything Ford decided to mount on it or in the way of it and decided I think it can a live a little longer with a leaking gasket.
