Skills needed to install AC

I have a used AC system that I am going to install in my 95 D90. It seems fairly simple from the research I've done. I'm not a skilled mechainc but I have some common sense. What is the skill level needed to install the system and at what point would I be best stopping to have a mechanic finish the rest? I am planning to have a shop charge the system.

You should be fine. Just make sure the wiring is proper and preoperly fused and you should be ok.

All the wires I have look like they have good connections (parts and truck) so I am assuming it is just plug and play. The idea of me and soldering is frightening.

I have only removed one, not installed one, but I'd rate it as pretty easy. If you truck had AC once before the wiring will be plug and play, but I'm not sure it will be if not. It's a pretty simple circuit though.

If it helps, here are a number of pictures I took when removing my AC

Your link is my inspiration that I can in fact do this myself! I don't think my truck ever had AC but I have what appear to be the AC connections in the passenger foot well.
