As a retired USAF NCO, you'll have no problem. I'm a former USAF 30474 electronics type (got out in '70) and do ALL my own TJ's work including suspensions, SYE installations, alignments, etc. and I was not an auto mechanics type guy when I was young. Most of my skills have been learned or greatly sharpened/improved since buying my '97 TJ back in '96 by doing everything on my own. You'll have no problems with any of this. Just know up front you'll need both SAE and metric tools... danged Wranglers use both types. I don't even bother getting under my Jeep anymore without having both metric and SAE sizes with me.

Yeppers! 23 years as a 325X0, changed to 45572B, then changed again to something like 2A0X1, and then finally to 2A5X3A... and not once did I actually change career fields, always Avionic Communications (and then in INFINITE air force wisdom, they added Navigations to it). I loved it.... and know how to turn a wrench.... (worked BUFFS, TANKERS, TALON 1's, 2's (MC-130), and Gunships(AC-130 both H and U model)) but could always use the help the forum provides!
