Yes I did. I will start with saying I'm very mechanically inclined.... so for me the install was super easy. But even if you aren't, just installing the bags isn't hard at all.
I chose to take my rear springs right out to install the bags. It is possible to deflate the air out of them completely and squish them into the coil though. Just remember to connect your airline to the top first and fish it through the frame where the spring sits otherwise you won't be able to get at the connector. From there you can just run your lines along the frame and down to the hitch. You can either T the lines together so they are running the same pressure all the time or keep them separate to have the bags at different pressure if needed. If you're only going to be using them for towing I'd recommend T-ing them together. If you plan on hauling heavy loads in the bed that might be unbalanced I'd keep them separate. After that you can mount the filler valve(s) in the hole(s) on the hitch near where the chains attach.
My install was a little more complicated than that as I hooked them up to the Airlift WirelessOne compressor as well... so my lines run differently and into a manifold etc. The total install probably took me about 4 hours but the majority of that was mounting my compressor, relays, manifold, wiring, etc. Doing just the bags themselves is probably about an hour tops.
