What motor, and what transmission? What gear set in the rear end, and do you care if that changes? Do you use the truck off-road, for towing, or do you care to
improve gas mileage or pulling ability? Do you have access to a good place to work on it?

I assume what you want to replace is the whole rear end from the post above -- see if you can find one in a boneyard or online to get an idea of the cost of parts.
The job is not difficult but it does take time. Depending on what tools you have and your working conditions figure at least a full day. Depending on what you find
what you get in there (bad brake lines, worn spring perches, etc.,) you may need to expand the project. If you've never worked on one, getting the parts via the
pick-and-pull route can be educational.

If all you want to replace is the differential, the job may be easier -- but this could still be a torque convertor issue, from the symptoms described.
