    From what I recall the rear axle is an easy swap but don't remember the front.

    Edit:

    Just did some searching the 4wd axles are wider for people lowering trucks that's an issue but if you're not then it might not bother you

    rear, you can swap the entire axle but it's 2-1/2" wider iirc, replace axle shafts in your current axle, or run adapters.
    front, you can run adapters or swap to the light duty 2500 rotor/hubs - may require you to upgrade calipers (i think there are 2 different rotor thicknesses for 1500s, youll need calipers that work with the thicker)
