Yhea! Its not as big a deal as I thought it would be....takes a while to drill out all the factory spot welds! Be extremly carefull not drill through your fuel tank!
You will have to unbolt all your body mounts to lift the body to give yourself workspace.....just remove the nuts from the bolts and leave the bolts and bushings in place!
Assuming you haven't stripped down already!

One more thing, after you start aligning the new cross member you will have to temporaryly hang the tailgate on to align and then you can begin or tack welds....then remove the tailgate and weld the rest!

I missed this step and almost screwed the whole thing up, luckily I was able to adjust the bolts on tailgate to align it....but its still a little off to one side!

Hope this helps!
