I'd say the easiest way would be:
-Break loose the lug nuts
-Jack up front of truck, put stands under frame rails to support it.
-remove front tires
-loosen the bolts that hold the lower UCA ball joint to the knuckle
-pop out the inner shaft of the CVs from the differential by lightly prying between the shaft and differential(I think they're just held in with a clip on the shaft, if anyone knows different, help me out here) and swinging the knuckle out.
-remove any wiring to the diff, and the bolts that hold the diff in place while supporting the diff with a floor jack to lower it down.

Pretty much. I've always removed the axle from the spindle before removing the differential end. Just easier to maneuver everything that way. The outer axle has a 35mm nut that you'll have to remove.

Drain the differential before removing the axles or you'll have a mess on your hands. And unfortunately, prying is the only way to get those axles out. They're really not difficult to remove but getting the right leverage can be a hassle. Just stick with it. When you get aggravated, take a beer break and then get back into it.
