I did install all of the lift components. My dad owns a shop so I had all of the tools and a lift to work with. The most difficult part was dropping the front differential and I used a transmission jack to do it. I would imagine it would have been much more difficult with the truck on jacks.
With that being said it went really smooth and he and I finished the lift in about 12 hours. In that time we went to lunch, stopped showered and went home for dinner and worked on several other vehicles coming into the shop while we were there.
The body lift took about 4 to do and it was pretty straight forward. The BDS kit came with longer brake lines and none of the brake relocation brackets in the body lift were needed. Also the body lift was much easier to do than the one on the 2007 I had.
Overall I can't complain about either, other than having to cut the rear bumper for the body lift. You have to notch it to fit over the support bracket.
