how to replace garage door lock? Is it a two man job?

That depends on how handy you are. I have worked alone for 27 years, with occasional help for large or heavy items. Assuming you are talking about the lock mechanism that runs to the sides of the door. I would have no trouble replacing a garage door lock by myself. But why does it need to be replaced. Often the lock mechanism it self needs replacing due to lost keys or just worn out latch, etc. The bars rarely need to be replaced.

You could save everyone a lot of time if you would simply tell us what lock where. Is this on an overhead door? Is this on a walk-thru door? What?

Depends on if you need someone to hold your beer and grab tools for you.
