Question Driveshaft U-Joint Replacement

Hi all,
It's been about 20yrs since I've replaced U-joints on any vehicle.
I bought a pair for my rear driveshaft and would like to replace them myself.
I don't recall U-joint replacement as being too difficult.
If there are any tips or online tutorials for TJ before I dive into it that would be very much appreciated.
Thanks!

Thanks Deaner!
Question
At the end of the tutorial he says:
"23. Install the drive shaft the opposite of how you took it out!"

....
what's up with that?
