Yes you can swap your axle, it's a pretty common mod. Like you said, you need to swap the whole axle, drum to drum, and take all the associated locker wiring with it.

I'll try to find you some useful links

Make sure to verify the two axles have the same gear ratio.

Check the axle code of the 4x4.
If its B03A, then it has 4.10 gears.

~$600, but if you plan on lifting/running 33's or 35's i'd get new rear gears and front gears that will handle the 33's or 35's better than stock.

The 5100's don't lift in the back, you'd need a AAL, shackle, or block to get lift in the rear.
I was told that a locker in the front shouldn't be a priority as you'll utilize armor (skids, sliders, Front and rear bumpers) before a locker.

But my opinion is that if you're regearing now, it'll be cheaper in the long run to go ahead and do a locker now, you'll have it if you need it, and someday you'll need/want it.
