Just know if you get in over your head with this swap, most mechanics charge extra for finishing something you've started. If you've never done gears before, it isn't recommended to do by reading a book, you need someone there with experience. But good luck with it.

If you just want to rebuild the traction loc it isn't too hard, I just did mine last weekend. But if you're changing the ring and pinion gears and have no experience at it, I'd leave that to a pro.

it's definitely doable but it's one of those things that has to be perfect it's fairly easy to rebulid the traction lock but steeing up a new ring and pinion can be a hassle. setting the pinion depth is the hardest part because you need to have the right shim and if you tighten it up and crush the crush sleeve and you didn't shim it enough the crush sleeve is junk. then you need an indicator and a fixture to hold it to check the backlash. good luck man
