Odd that you need to replace the brakes at 40+k. Most frontiers get well over 70k before needing fronts and near 90k before needing rears. Granted YMMV and if you have a heavy foot or a tire tech who doesn't believe in a torque wrench then it's not out of the question that you could have a little rotor warpage starting, just saying it's well outside the norm.
The frontier does have a soft brake pedal, no denying that. And if you share driving duties with another car it's even more noticeable when getting back in the fronty.
As to the job itself, it is a fairly simple procedure. Just follow the good advice above and make sure you pay attention to how things came apart you should be fine. If you're not mechanically inclined and don't have experience with braking systems I don't recommend opening the hydraulic system. If you open a bleeder valve and don't get the air properly bled out you can create a dangerous situation in a hurry.
