Default Replacement of front passenger axle on 2002 1500 4x4 w/ the 4.7

The front passenger axle on my 02 1500 is completely destroyed... It started acting up a bit on my way from Camp Lejeune, NC to VT and i didn't want to waste time dealing with it on the way so I basically limped it all the way in and now it is completely shot.. I don't think it would even go another 10 miles without the CV completely falling apart. I plan on replacing it myself (I've done quite a few in smaller passenger vehicles) but this is my first in a truck. I've got a cheepo auto parts store manual for the truck so I'm not looking for step by step instructions on how to do it cause I should be able to figure that out pretty easily. Mostly I am wondering if there are any problems that arise frequently, tips for doing it, things besides the axel that are worth replacing while I'm in there anyways, or any other words of wisdom that yall might know. Thank you in advance!!
