The wiring is easy, positive and negative. About the easiest install you have after you getting the wrenching bug. As far as the awkwardness, I have taken my front and rear bumper (with tire carrier) off several times. If you're doing it your self just place one side on a raised platform, I used a chair. Then just lift the other side and put the bolts in hand tight. Go to the other side and do the same, then tighten them. Easy Easy and will save you some cash. Also, I am in Topeka, if you are ever in the area, only an hour away from KC, I will help you throw that thing on.
