Hanger lift? How hard to install?

Bought a fabtech 3.5" hanger lift for a 2002 f350. Is it okay to try to install this myself in my driveway. I bought a zone adj trac bar also to make it easier. Or should it be professionally installed. Its just local shops want about 500 for install... Should i attempt? Any pointers? Thanks.

Supporting the frame high enough that the suspension can fully droop low enough after the lift.

It's a fairly simple job... air tools make it 10x easier though
