I just installed a Reese custom kit with 58080 Reese rails this weekend. I took my time and it took about 3.5 hours. Pretty easy, measure 4000000000000X and drill once, LOL. Harbor Freight has some decent step drill bits for putting the holes through the bed nice and clean. I did need an extra pair of hands when putting the nuts on some of the bolts, but could have accomplished the same thing with a brick (they just needed to hold down the bolts from the top). Universal kit was $175.00 with the rails, custom bracket kit brought the price up to $200.78, and used the existing holes in the truck frame. I bought my stuff from E-Trailer.

Did my F350 with the custom Reese brackets and only had to drill 1/2 the bed holes as the previous owners hitch holes lined up with one side of each of the rails. Found a video on YouTube showing the install and that helped. Also Camping World is advertising the $39 install

For $39.00 I would definitely let them do it. Local shop around Houston charges retails price on a universal kit (only thing they install) + $250.00 for the install. Piece of mind, no extra holes in the frame, and install price all meant I did it myself.

Thanks to everybody for your replies! Got it done this past weekend. The custom brackets made it pretty simple. Took about 2 hours and I had the hauler hooked up and out for a test drive!
