Easier on a lift, but I did mine with a jack. It's up in the tunnel but not real hard.

The dealer is going to install it for you? The last time I talked to a dealer about installing an aftermarket part they told me that they don't do that. Maybe it was that particular dealer but the skip shift eliminator doesn't require any special skills other than following the instructions and can easily be done at home.

You can do just about anything to this car with a jack and jackstands. Lift is always better but very few people actually have them. I do everything myself without a lift. Haven't ran into anything yet I couldn't do.
