It can be done yes. But I would find an older solid Dana 60 to swap in there.
reason why I say this is for a couple reasons.
1. Older dana 60's have serviceable wheel bearings the 2001 axle does not. So if a wheel bearing goes you will spend about 300 dollars per side for the sealed bearing assembly on the 01 axle.
2. The older dana 60's can be found at many part yards, in many different gear ratios. So you may be able to find one that will match your rear end gear ratio. So you will not have to buy a new set of gears.
3. Dana 60's are almost impossible to break.
