Yeah I have on my been doing this since 2011.

Unless you can keep the battery free from engine compartment heat which usually means you will be relocating the battery and plan to remove the battery when it gets cold don't bother.
LiFePO4 batteries suffer from very bad cold numbing.
Aside from weight, and durability there really isn't any advantage to replacing a lead acid with lithium.
