How hard is it to replace a front drivers side axle?

Yesterday I was putting the 4wd to work and got hung up and snapped it!

Looks simple enough...My question is once you pull the rotor and brakes and hub off and such is it just a matter of pulling the axles out that is after the nut is taken off or do ya need to open the diff and remove anything as well?

For a regular job.. its easy... There is a write-up regarding this here....

But depending on where the OP's is broken at, he MAY have to open the diff....

You'll need a 36mm socket to get the hub nut off. You don't have to remove that nut to get the hub off the knuckle, but you do have to remove it to get the axle shaft out of the hub.
