Lightbulb Any special obstacles when installing trac drive opener on 8 ft. tall door?

I am installing a new sears trac drive garage door opener on a 8 ft. tall door. I know I must get the extension kit for the extra height. Is there anything special that would help me get this done other than reading the instructions beforehand. Also, I have installed chain drive openers before--are the trac drive models inherently more or less difficult than chain? This is a new build home so is no existing opener. Thanks, Brad

It should go in ok, but read ALL the directions first, then install it in each step in sequence. It is when people jump steps that trouble starts. Good Luck
