Tips and tricks for a ZF5 swap in an OBS?

I have now gathered all of the parts..I hope. I am planning on starting on it the week of thanksgiving and for those that have done it is there anything that you can think of that made certain parts easier? Anything you wish you would have know and did when you did yours? For the most part it seems pretty straight foreward but any advice is welcome! Also anyone in Utah who would want a killer deal on a BTS tranny let me know!

RSK rolling on 35's. 4" straight pipe. 2011 f350 ccsb leveled on 35's, I can neither confirm nor deny that it is tuned and deleted!

Get a solid flywheel, none of that dual mass bullcrap. Way better, lasts longer.

If your up-pipes need doing.. the tranny is gonna be out anyway...
