quite easy if you dont rush it! just take a full saturday off and get 2 or 3 buddies to help you out and take your time and you should do fine. just spray the bolts with wd-40 or somthing the day before, i broke two torx heads and two bolts trying to take 2 bolts out of the bed....wow that was quite the ryme lol and just make sure no cables or stuff get caught up or really tight.

Thats what I"m running.

I have 0 problems with the doetesh spindles.

Body lift is too easy. I've done 3 now though. Recently done kevins, it was super easy.

Spindles are sooo easy. I didn't have any of the right tools and i spent 12hrs. I took 2 breaks and whatched a football game inbetween. Lots of cursing and bloody nuckles.

At the rate I"ma t now, 2hrs total and I could have it done. Air tools though...

Leave about 7+ hours for you first body lift. and power tools and a tourch greatly reduce your time
