I have replaced several carrier bearings by the roadside with hammer and steel punch (or shaft) to drive them off of and on to the driveshaft.

If you are not sure how the shafts go back together be sure to mark them. If you fail to do that, then all you need to do is line up ALL u-joints with each other so they flex in unison. Wrong line up will cause horrendous noise, vibration, and failure in very short order, sometimes in less than a mile of driving.
