did it myself. PITA. someone else on here had it done at a shop and they took out the pumpkin, labor was not bad from what i recall. i dropped the gas tank and a couple driveshaft loops. if you have a lift...its easy, jackstands 12" off the ground, not too fun. its not really that bad i guess even on jackstands, i had a cold concrete floor to lay on in the winter and a snap on scissor lift under my car that doesn't work, so that took away like another 5" of working space.
