Yep, good time as any to go ahead and upgrade those axle shafts. Keep the stockers for trail spares.
I have gone both routes with the rear axle shafts: pressed the bearings and retainer rings on myself on one set, and paid NR4x4 to do them and ship me another set of axle shafts complete, ready for plug-n-play. The $60 to have them show up to my door complete was well worth it, IMO.
If you have a press, it wouldn't be a big deal to DIY. But, not having the right tools means you pay a little more to have somebody else do it correctly for you.
