Heater Core Replacement

Well, it went and took a leak under the truck. Not a 6-Pack leak, but a tinkle nontheless. And in the middle of a 1600 mile trip. Talk about fogging up the windows. So question-

How long does it take to replace a Heater Core ?
What does ALLDATA say?
Can I do it myself?

TIA,
Bruno.....

Thanks eaton and JS. The info is much appreciated.

JS-Why keep the batteries "in the cab"? and what do you think about the coolant filter?

Batteries are in the cab because I didn't think about putting them on the frame when I was building the sub enclosure. Coolant filter only has ~500mi on it, so no thoughts yet.
