Heck, I read this thread simply because I didn't know what "auto tech by trade owners" meant. I'd think you'd do better with a title of "GMM Rip Shifter installation advice", but that's just me.
I'll be investigating the same thing. I am an old shade-tree mechanic, and have 10 years of helicopter repair & and A&P, so I know my way aroud a toolbox. If not too expensive, I'd rather just have a shop install it and work a few hours of OT to pay for it, but my ony concern is finding a shop I can trust to do it right.
Since I have a garage, ramps, jack stands, and a fairly complete set of good tools, I might just do it myself this winter if it doesn't sound too difficult. Heck, after not having turned a wrench ('cept for stuff like alternators, water pumps, etc.) on a car in nearly 20 years, I was even sort of dreading doing my own oil changes. Pfft! Took me all of 20 minutes, if that.
