Haha, this is where you're definitely not going to like the answer....

On the 2012's and up you can't change the gears in the front diff.... For some bonehead reason Dodge decided it was a good idea to weld them in. So you'll need to get a front diff from a 2011 in order to make the swap. I believe some machining is required as well to fit the bigger gears. You're probably looking at around $3600-ish for the gear swap alone (that's what I've heard at least). Then about $3000+ for wheels and tires and then $1700-ish for the RCX lift kit, Bilsteins and coil spacer. Install would probably be around $900 but if you're an okay mechanic you can install it yourself and then just get the alignment done afterwards ($100).
