Excluding the 150, how easy are they to install. Plug and play or cutting and spicing lines. Can I do it in my driveway in a few hours?
Yes, the kits are 6.4 specific so the mounting bracket is made for our trucks as are the line connections. They include barbed hose connectors since the lines are set up for the longest line runs possible like you'd do on a CC/LB, the lines would be quite a bit shorter on a SC/LB, so you just splice them, install the connectors and you're good to go.
Anyone who tells you that they didn't either drop the tank or lift the bed is full of it. You HAVE to do one or the other. The bed on my buddy's truck was being far from cooperative, so we lowered the tank a bit (without completely dropping/removing it), so make sure you don't have a lot of fuel sloshing around in there when you lower the tank so it's easier to handle. The wiring is plug and play and very straightforward so no worries there...
I'm not exactly buying some of these 1 1/2 hour install stories I've read about installing it either, give yourself a full day to get it done and be happy when you get it done in the half the time and get some wheel time to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
