Changing wiper motor and wipers

I am interested in a 94 YJ, but the windshield frame was replaced with a new one (i assume from rust) but the motor and windshield wipers have not been swapped over. How big of a deal or how hard is it to add the motor and wipers to the jeep? I assume you would fold the windshield down and the motor would go there and pop all necessary wiper parts on that way? Below is the URL to the Jeep for reference. Thanks for all the help

If your handy it only takes about 30 minutes to install it all. Just be careful taking it apart some of the parts are plastic and can be brittle. But pretty straightforward.

I am fairly handy and have done some work on my current vehicle and my buddies f150. I am pretty confident I can handle this or with the help of my buddy. Will I need to disassemble anything else other than dropping the windshield? Thanks for the quick reply

Just pay attention to how it comes out of the old windshield and put it back in the same way.... I just did this a couple of weeks ago when I replaced a rotted out windshield frame....

and ditto on the little plastic bushings, I hear they're a bear to find replacements....

Not the sharpest bulb in the box....

My Jeep is possessed with the goal of making me lose my religion....

I agree with everyone above. It is fairly simple. I did a windshield swap 2 years ago. Just pay attention and add grease to the linkage so the plastic retainers don't break when you put it all back together.
