The Rating System

Most places will rate how hard a modification is to do with "stars" or "wrenches" (this will be a 4 wrench job). I am a little more realistic. We all know a day under the car can be painful, and there is usually the need for a band aid or two. With that in mind, I will rate my modifications section based upon the number of pints of blood you can expect to lose from performing this modification. You may also infer from this how many aspirin you will need the day after to take care of the soreness. Therefore, the rating system:

Difficulty Explanation
One Pint: An easy mod that will require little time and perhaps one band aid.
Two Pints: Still not a hard mod, perhaps taking 30 minutes to one hour and requiring band aids and antibacterial ointment.
Three Pints: Now you are talking- expect large skin abrasions and one to two hours of your time.
Four Pints: Ace bandages and ice packs mandatory, as are large sterile gauze pads. This will take up two to four hours of your day, and allow you to find muscles you did not remember having but are now very sore.
Five Pints: Just call the paramedics and have them on standby- you will probably break one or more bones and require dozens of stitches. You will no longer want to transport your loved ones in the car for fear of their safety. This mod will take you better than four hours.
