Walk in the park. rear axle should bolt right up with new u-bolts and a conversion u-joint that will convert your 1310 or 1350 joint to a 1410.  There is a slight chance you will have to reweld your spring pirches.  I dont know if  the front is two or four wheel drive but you can easily change the hubs out.
