I have done a couple vehicles in the last couple weeks and it is less than an hour to do for me anyway.

I bought the relays and the pigtails for the relays at a local auto parts store along with an inline fuse holder and double walled waterproof heatshrink tubing because I solder my connections. Crimp connectors will work too but... They even sell crimp connectors that have their own heat shrink tubing these days, I just live in the rust belt so dislike crimps.

You just have to cut the one wire to the headlights and use the end from the switch to trigger the relay so the relay feeds the other end direct fused power. Take your time and it's not hard to do.
