it's not hard, just takes some time. drain your coolant, and stick a garden hose where you fill the radiator and let some fresh water run through the engine to clean it before you pull the radiator. there are some clips that hold the radiator to the grille that broke when i removed mine, so i had to get some nuts&bolts to re mount it properly. If you're using the stock clutch fan, that will have to come off and the shroud as well. When I did mine, i went ahead and put a new thermostat in...i think it is a 190* or 195* if your water pump hasn't gone yet you might want to just put one on while your coolant is drained and you're working in that general area.
