Half door locks on full doors?

Like the title says, I have half doors right now and I just bought full doors a couple of weeks ago from a guy that was parting out his TJ. They are getting painted right now down the street from me. Can I just take out the locks from my half doors and put them in the full doors?
Is it hard?

Yes, you can. Just take the backs of the doors off and see how its setup, did this with mine about 2 years ago. the locks are the same, might have to visit a locksmith just to grab the metal covers that will probably get damaged. They should only run a couple cents each.

It depends on the model years. I traded my 98 half for 04 doors. Different size locks and holes in the doors. It was easy to jut get the new doors and locks keyed to your existing keys. Either do yourself or just take the cylinders to a locksmith.
