    Reserving this spot, as the good people came through.
    I will hopefully have a complete video clip finished, and a link posted by Monday Nov.12, '18 in this thread.

    For now, I give you a couple pics of the damage free box, and mega excellent packaging, has me excited. Surprised the box is as big as it is, there must be even more fill inside the Honeywell box!

    Standard wheelbase '18, and it just barely made inside the hatch with only the 3rd row folded flat.

    BTW, they sent it out, "signature required," which I wasn't counting on.
    I only found that out, when I tracked it, Sunday.
    Tried to reroute to FedEx office, but it said that it required the shipper to change.

    Thankfully, sent a message to them through eBay, to which they took care of the change, and it didn't change the delivery date, even though FedEx had told them it could result in a delayed delivery of the following Monday.

    Here is a link to 6 somewhat short clips, as promised. I'll add more to this eventually, but at present, I need a break from the computer screen.
    Overall very happy, with the outcome, I do wish I had recorded a bit more of what I did to make life easier on myself, as I was working from ground level, again with 2 solid cinder blocks under both front tires for added clearance. No assistance utilized during this process, but certainly an extra set of hands would be welcomed raising the Garrett unit into place, and holding in place as bottom support brace is reinstalled. I used my knees while lying on my back, under the vehicle. Yes envision knees to chest, while on your back, and one of your free hands maintaining level of cooler while threading bolt on each side, followed by tightening bolts with ratchet.
    This is my first foray into posting to YouTube, obviously lots of room for improvement.
