theres a lot more than just swapping the ring and pinion, it takes a lit of time and money. The 50 dollar gears with need master install kits which are 150 a piece, then plan on 200-300 for set up on each rearend. Its pretty easy to swap the complete assemblys out of the 4 cylinder with a manual tranny (4.10) you can probaly get both rearends for under 200 bucks a piece,

also if the local gears are used its a little harder to set up and a lot of shops wont want to do it since they have to try to match the previous wear pattern on the gears

NO, installing gears isn't something the average mechanic will do, let alone the average Joe weekend tinkerer.
Find a reputable shop that "does gears" - find who the local 4wheelers recommend.
It will cost $1000 - 1200 total for both axles to have it done.
It is NOT a good idea to try to re-use used gears. Once they establish a pattern, they're set for life. I doubt you will find a shop that will even touch used gears.
Swapping entire axles is very simple. Quitre a bit of work involved, but it's just a bolt in deal. Get a shop manual...
