Overlander Axles, Re-gear and lockers costs?

Hi guys,

I have a few questions about axles, and I hope someone can help me out or clarify a few things for me.

I have a JKU 14' Sahara with 3" Teraflex lift and a front runner roof rack(RTT coming soon) and 35" KO2 tires and factory gears. So sluggish af with all the drag haha not to forget the bad gas mileage.
I don't like rock crawling unless necessary to get to my campsite and many times I'm roadtripping to the trails and campsites.. I like overlanding and exploring if you will. As you may already know the Sahara has Rear Dana 44 and Front Dana 30 axles.

I want to do something about it. So here are the questions:

1. For the specific use of my Jeep should I replace the front axle with a dana 44 then re-gear and stuff? or Truss Gusset and sleeve and it'll be fine? Is there a cost difference?

2. How much should re-gearing from 3.21 - 3.73 to 4.56 or 4.88 cost?

3. How much should adding front and rear lockers with air compressor cost?

Thank you fellow Jeepers for the help.
