Need a step by step for timing installation

Installed new heads in my 2001 WJ 4.7L V8. Next I have a new timing kit. Does anyone have a step by step for timing that I can follow? Worried about screwing it up.

I just recently did that (and still in the process of putting it all back together among other things I'm doing). I just used a Haynes manual. It was sufficient for me. Those are pretty cheap on amazon, I'd stay away from buying new at auto stores, they're overpriced there.
