Relocating the Brake Vacuum Pump

I'm installing the Rough Country JK Stubby Winch Bumper w/Fog Mounts this weekend which requires me to relocate the brake vacuum pump. I purchased their relocation bracket required for my Wrangler.

What concerns me is in the instructions it states "professional knowledge of disassembly/reassembly procedures as well as post installation checks must be known. Attempts to install this system without this knowledge and expertise may jeopardize the integrity and/or operating safety of the vehicle." If I label all of the hoses and take photos before removing them is this something I can remove and reinstall myself? I'm not a mechanic but I've done a lot of work to my cars in the past and to my Wrangler but I've never messed with anything like this. I want to make sure I won't ruin anything, haha.

Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

It is just CYA wording in the instructions. Moving the Vacuum pump is not the most difficult part of a bumper install. If you can do the rest of the job, you can move the vacuum pump no problem.

Cool, thanks. That's what I figured.
