I did it, with one spring and the remote it wasn't too hard. He lowered it with the remote when he was working on it, and after that it was done. Lifting it is exactly what I bought my way out of, the springs wouldn't be here until tommorow at best, and the door is heavy. My car is on the street, I could just leave the Jeep there, but my wife is in the garage and goes in and out a few times a day. I would DIY this, especially after watching it done, it's easy and much less risk than a winch or high lift. It's like using two mini-high lift handles with much less tension and it's predictable.
