The key to longevity is how clean you keep the shaft on the cylinder. There is a wiper to remove dirt but the stock one is fragile and wears out. Then dirt gets to the shaft seal and the leak starts. 10 -15 ml of oil gone and she will falter on a lift.
For the original poster - easy to retro fit as the bolt pattern is the same for all years on the cradle mount to the transmission. There are some safety interlocks that are lost when you retrofit, but is you use a push button and relay to operate it you should not have an issue.
