If you look at the Lincoln you'll see that it is on a roll back type tow truck, now that could be substituted with a 3 or 4 foot retaining wall which ever was comfortable and available to work with (drive across the grass and let the front end overhang the wall). I chose using the bed even though I have 2 hoists available, I used the hoist for the Sport, and it was equally as convenient.

As far as air tools go yes they are nice if you've got them it just depends how much time or money you'd like to invest into the job.

Blue Ox gives you a list (downloadable PDF installation instruction files) of the tools you need to do the install and I'm sure the others do as well

I'm sorry. I didn't intend to say you need air tools or a lift, it just made the job easier and maybe quicker. Basic hand tools and possibly an electric drill is all thats needed.

HAHAHAHAHA I would LOVE to fully equip my garage...and I was going to use your post to convince wifey....now you had to ruin it. :(

Seriously.....In reading the instructions from Roadmaster (which are very clear, well written and illustrated with nice photos) it appears that you really should work in an environment where you can lift the car, support it on jacks, etc...while I hope the garage looks like that at some point, it ain't gonna be soon. (buy MH or equip garage...hmmmm) So I will probably be paying someone to put these on.
