On a scale of 1-10(1 easy 10 difficult)
Could I do this in a day? and by myself?

yes, the only time constriction is if you've had your dash off before...if you have it will take like 20 minutes...if not it will take more just playing with it and stuff

just watch those gauges when you put them on. make sure there lined up right(i used scotch tape) and make sure they are down all the way. for some reason mine stick if the inside of the truck is cold but once the inside gets heated up, the gauges work fine. i dont understand why, but i think that ill have to take it apart once again. and after youve done it three times youll get good at taking your dash apart.

to pull of the radio bezel pull out the ash tray and there are 2 7mm bolts.
pull those out pull the radio out then whole bezel just clips in.
you might be able to get the heater controls out with the just bottom bolts out but the controls itself also have 7mm bolts in them also.
