As long as you have the brackets, then it is pretty easy. Hardest parts is the fact that the bumper is awkward, but I did mine by myself.

You'll need a grinder to trim about 1/2" off the upper front frame horn flange in order to make room to properly align the bumper

I agree with Mr Muffin make sure you take out the fuse for the airbag, my buddies Ford lost it airbags in the process of him "beating the bumber into place" as he put it. But I always remember that he's got a couple of screws lose himself. You pry won't achieve his mistakes,but it always better to be safe.

Hmmm...I guess I was lucky, never had a problem installing the front brackets...the easiest way to make sure the bumper is aligned correctly, is to measure the gap in between the blinker corner lights, and the top of the bumper. There should be no more than 1/2" to 5/8" inbetween. It should be even on both sides, then you will know that you have it lined up correctly. Oh, and I wouldn't try to use the incorrect bumper brakets, I would just get the correct brackets and do it right the first time. I tried this on my rear, and the bumper is crooked, but I bash on it all the time anyway...hope this helps...
