Good price! It can be done in a full day if you start in the morning. I'd say I had probably 8-10 hrs total time. I split it into two days. I would recommend becoming familiar with instructions before install. Double check which way mounting brackets go and making sure that washers, etc. are correct on bolts before tightening (guess how I know that?) Also, they ask for 250 lb/ft of torque. I bought a special torque wrench to do this. I just tightened as tight as I could get. Also, have some Loctite. Make a plan for wiring for power and switch to the unit. There are two holes in the firewall on drivers side that are closed with silicone. I opened one and fed wire through there and resiliconed. I may have drilled it a little larger. Power wire feeds to power bay below driver. I pulled cover that holds gauges and switches to left of driver and used a straightened coat hanger to pull wire through from front left corner in area sealed with foam in power bay below. Actual install time is relatively short. The prep time takes as long or longer. I mounted the switch on that left panel. There is a picture of it on truecenter thread under Berkshire forum area. Hope this helps and good luck. It's definitely a worthwhile product to have. Can't wait to see how it performs out west in the open, windy areas.
