It depends on how many people are helping and if you have read through all the info on this site to help you. I completed my first body lift on my 2005 Ranger XLT 4x4 by myself while only referencing the instructions that came with it and it took me about 8 1/2 hours. I was probably 19 years old. I am 25 now and with the info from this site and my "wise" mind (haha) I would hope I could complete it in about 6-7 hours myself.

Body lifts arent too bad, but you may run into some tough bolts to get out. I had to heat mine with a torch to get them off, but that was the hardest part of it all for me.

Body lifts aren't that difficult. I did it in my driveway in about 4 hours with no instructions and a high lift jack. Given I didn't have bumpers to move, so that cut out a little time, but they aren't that hard.
