no i did not do the install myself. i made my decision to purchase the kit after seeing an article in an issue of 4x4 Power. in the article the kit was installed at a shop in about 4 hours. I imagine that the one piece sub-frame has got to be alot easier to install. The alignment shop loved it because it retains factory style adjustment. i think if i had done it myself it would have taken about a day plus the other necessary items like the exhaust work and alignment. looking back should have done it myself instead of the hacks at the shop i took it to. One brake hose wasn't tightened completely, the heim joints that position the ladder bar/centerlink were installed incorrectly and the fact that it tool a day longer than they had told me it would.
