Axle swap time

I found a set of stock axles (dana 30 and dana 35 ) with 4.10 gearing and only about 76,000 miles. I was wondering the average amount of time to swap both front and back axle. I am good with the 30 and 35 as it is my daily driver and do not wheel a ton. I also plan on not running anything bigger than 33 inch tires.

Because it is my DD, I am wondering a rough amount of time to swap them? I will be doing a spring lift at the same time.

Thanks

figure a long weekend. IF everything is perfect it could be done in a day, but inevitably youll have rusted bolts that slow you down and little things like that.

Last axle swap i did took an entire weekend because little stuff kept biting us, brake bleeders frozen and stripped out, control arm bolt frozen, ect. This was our third axle swap
