It is a very simple install. takes about 30-40 minutes. make sure you have a couple blocks of wood to stick between your bumper and the bottom edge of the tailgate so it does not slip out of alignment. Also have red locktite on hand. I reused my stock carrier so there was no reason to remove the back of it to disconnect the brake light. I just used a rubber cord to hold it out of the way until I was ready to put it back on. Teraflex has a real good install video that if you watch you do not even need the printed instructions.
I was skeptical about how it would work but after putting it on I can see how it takes the weight of the tire/wheel off the tailgate and supports the weight with the heavy duty hinges instead of the sheet metal of the tailgate.
