Your truck is pretty straight forward for a regear, you just need the 4.56's for the both diffs and price wise with new gears, bearings and labor you should be looking around the 1300 to 1400.
You should run into the same issue with the tips of the ring encountering 2 spots in the housing, 1. most shops doing diffs arent a machine shop like myself and won't be able to machine the ring, 2. you can clearance the housing in those 2 spots which will be cheaper with a grinder, or the shop can do it.
I'd rather clearance the housing than listen to the machining of the ring

The cost is all dependent where you find the front diff and all it's brackets.
You can use a 2003 to 2010 and it's brackets MUST also be taken with the front diff.
The 2013 axles work with the 03 to 10 front diff.
You will need to visit a machine shop to machine the end yoke of the 2013's end yoke it needs it's thru hole dimension machined and the ground hub dimension machined or you'll be in need of a new front shaft also.
The rear diff needs everything changed, aftermarket axles and carrier, then it's business as usual, rather than machine the carrier to get the 4.56 to work in there, which doing it that way changing everything opens you up to more choices of carriers.
