Is the rear axle seal hard for a shadetree mechanic to repalce?

Have a leaking rear axle seal on the right rear wheel of an F-350 4x4. How difficult is that to repair for a backyard mechanic?

If I can do it, then ANYONE can do it. I did it myself with some hand tools in the driveway. Only thing is, you need the special axle nut socket. I bought mine from Napa for $35.

Done! Thanks for all the help!!!!! Only thing is....... changing the rear end fluid while I'm at it and when I took the rear end cover off there was no magnet????? Isn't there supposed to be a magnet inside the diff cover on a 2006 F-350 SRW???
