Difficulty of Dana 20 rebuild?

So my transfer case is leaking out of the rear seal. I got 402001 rebuild kit from advanced adapters.

What Im wondering is how hard is it to install? I've read up on it and seems fairly intensive. I have some tools (basic mechanics tool) but no press or any thing. Would it be something I can do, or should I take it to a shop for this time?

You will need to press the bearings off and on the shafts. You may also want to purchase a dial indicator(although it isn't really necessary).
Other than that, it is pretty straight forward.

It doesn't take a lot of pressure to get the bearings on, the issue is pulling them. You will need a bearing splitter or puller to get them off.
