Default U/D Pulley install help!

I just got my U/D pullies for my 2003 3.0 in the mail and im pumped to get them in! I do need some help though. Is there any particular way to do this in a certain order to make it easiest and how to also get the dumb fan off.

If you know a link to a write up of the install that would be great! I got the Underdog Performance 4 piece kit so its 3 pullies that are gonna be swaped and then the new gatorback belt.

Thanks for any help!

i got the 4 piece kit my self but never got around to the water pump pulley yet
you will need a friend to help with the drive pully.
leave the belt on and one of you hold the wrench on the fan shaft and the other craws under to remove than install the drive unit
now the alternator pulley just take that into ant auto part store or garage because there all most imposable to remove lol

You can get the special tool rental for taking the fan clutch off at an Autozone or similar store. You could do it without it, but why make it hard on yourself if you can have the special tool with a free rental.

Okay so I guess ill run to autozone tomorrow morning to get that tool. Is the fan clutch and all pretty much the hardest thing to remove?

Couldn't tell you which is hardest to remove. I have never taken anything other than the fan off.
