that is going to be a humongous pain in the ass. if i remember right, on my 7.5 i had to drain the diff to be able to pull the axle out of the tub enough to pound the oild studs out, and get the new ones in. same with the 8.8 i swapped in.

from there, air tools are easiest to get the new lugs in, but i managed to do it with a breaker bar and some beer.
Why does everyone think prerunners just jump stuff?
