10 seconds to take it off and 10 seconds to put it on,give or take a few seconds.

To start with you have to drill amd mount the clips onto the truck. It takes all of 25 minutes from opening the box to the final install. Very simple and easy.

You may want to add another 20-30 minutes to cover BS time with a buddy. I think we spent more time standing around shootin' the shit then we did working. Just b careful that you measure well and use any templates they give you. Also if a friend can help it would be best.
