Rodney, thanks for the quick response, and the great info.
just a few things, will I need any "specialty" tools/wrenches, and
will I have to move any other parts besides what's mentioned in the info you supplied?
I've watched some you tube videos, and in some vehicles, you have to drop/lower the sub frame.(other makes, not mb​​​​​​)
in other words, is there any of that you think I will need to do. I just want as much info as possible,
before I order the rack, and realize I'm in over my head....... thanks again!!👍🏻👍🏻

That WIS doc shows the special tools needed, which are mainly the ball joint separator. The article numbers in red are lnks to other WIS docs, but those are just the ones for removing the lower engine cover and pressing out the ball joints, so those should be self explanatory.
