Default Install an entrance iron door?

I will be receiving a door from iwantthatdoor.com and was wondering if Anyone close was willing to install it. I can help. FYI, the r/o is slightly taller than the new doorframe. Also, the actual door jamb is slightly less than 1 inch wider than the wall. I would do it myself but the door will likely be heavy and I'm not sure what to do with the moulding/ casing situation on the outside of the house. Pm me an estimate and we can go from there.

I don't live in your area, put two ideas for you

1 Use shims or blocks of wood under the door to hold it to the right height while you work on it in place

2 If you need to space the new door frame away from the exterior trim, you can add a few washers on the install bolts between frame and trim. This may be needed if your trim does not have a flat surface to secure too.

Thanks for the advice but this door will replace the current door. It is not a security door.

with a door that heavy you should think about calling a reputable door company that will warranty the install. Nothing worse than a big heavy door that will not close.
