Def pre-hung and definitely get someone else to do it.It looks pretty straightforward, but I know nothing of such things. Buy a pre-hung door of the right size, and have someone pop the old one out and the new one in? Barring unforeseen problems, it looks fairly simple. It's a 'regular' front door. Anything to look out for?

This. This is what is in the back of my mind in this 60 year old house. Often when I peel back a layer to do something, it reveals issues. I call this a Frankenstien house due to each generations of unrelated modifications. I'm thinking/hoping this should be pretty straightforward though.When I hung the current front door on my home, I discovered termites and ended up jacking up the second floor and tearing out 12-feet of wall, installing all new studs, plates and, or course, the door. This actually made installing the new door a bit easier, because I could frame it perfectly for the door. I basically framed that section of the house around the new door. Another one of those "OMG" moments in a homeowners life.
