Its really easy. The big thing with OHC is to cut the headliner smaller than the mounting plate. This way yo uget a very nice tight fit. If you take your time its very easy

Your mustang dome might be a direct swap...so it could be simple just depends on when your 04 was made...

They are simple. The forum has write ups on how to do the installs. The OHC was my very first mod and first crack at wiring stuff up in rangers. Its a simple mod, you may get a bit nervous cutting into the headliner but it works out just fine. If you want to do the mod read up on the how to's for a bit like a study guide and you'll be good. If you run into any jams I can personally assure you the members here will help you through it.
