Have done it a few times.  This guide is complete.  Make sure you have 54mm axle nut socket, torque wrench, snap ring pliers, lots of grease for packing bearings and birf, brass drift/punch, anti-seize, pull scal/fish scale, one M8x1.25 bolt (check guide regarding putting snap ring back on, pretty sure that is the size you will want), use the FSM suggestions on shim heights, I don't remember but pretty sure 4crawler references the correct shim pattern.

If your new hub is greased leave it be, if not be prepared for some patience.  There is a YouTube out there on cleaning and regressing the hub.  It's a bit of a pain.

That's the most important things off the top.of my head.  Good luck.
If I don't ask the stupid question, who will?

85 Runner, 22RE, AEM 'warm intake', TRD Cam, LC Headers, Dual Case, 5.29's, ARB Front Locker, Detroit Rear Locker, 35's, V6 Brakes, ARP Studs, Marlin Arms/Caps/Hy-Steer, Winch, Armor, Can-Back Top....and...

...more Gremlins than Gizmo the Mogwai was responsible for.
