Steering column much of a PITA to swap?

Reason number 746 why lifted trucks ain't so great....having to yard on the steering wheel to get in, and loosening up the steering column bearings in doing so

Any ideas on how hard they are to change out? My steering wheel was rocking back and forth a tiny bit, and I figured it was just the big bolt had loosened up, but after removing the airbag that bolt was still tight. I gotta do the clock spring while I'm in there, too, but I'm not sure how to go about that bearing.

Thanks for any advice!!

I'm interested in this one too. I happened to score a boneyard sterring column for less then 50 bucks but I was thinking of replacing the bearings in my original column and either selling it on ebay or keeping it around as a spare.
