If you want to buy complete, assembled diffs, Jenny's RC Sport on ebay is your best bet. Otherwise, a ring/pinion will run about $25 - $30 at your LHS, and the internal gears, close to $8. At the end of the day, the cost is about the same, depending on how high the auction on ebay gets (I see them selling for about $35 now...)

As for assembly, maybe download the manual if you're unsure. It's pretty straight-forward. I know the beveled edge of the diff slugs need to face a specific way, I believe towards the diff housing, as opposed to towards the spider gear, but double check when you're removing them to install the same way.

As for diff fluid... If you're just bashing around on/off road, 10K is plenty. You're going to get some opinions here all based on what you're using the truck for... I run 50K in mine (front and rear) to get a locking action, and I love it.
