Nothing tricky about installing a bathtub.
Consider this: You have measured the space, all the door opening, etc.. You have allowed enough time to start and finish the job. You have allowed enough money to complete the job just in case you have to hire someone to help finish the job, or just help you with a few things. You have the new tub specifications and avaibility. You have done a job take off of all the materials. Now comes the tricky part. There are some considerations on the plumbing drain, waste,and vent, such as what size is the drain, the type of material its made of and if you have to cut it and replace it because of age or city code are you able to do that. This goes for the water also.
As for setting the tub consider this. Will you run into dry root, is the floor stable or due you need new sub-floor or joist. The tub its self has only one drain plumbing connection on the waste and overflow to the trap. make sure you can get to the waste and overflow after the installation and finish is done.
This should be enough for you to chew on for now.
Hope You commit your self to finishing the project and you can if you realy want to. Give yourself a good schedule allowing enough time to start and finish each phase of the project. Don't push your self to hard. The job will get done faster if you use good common sence and patient.
good luck,
