rebuilding 12 bolt truck rear end?

I have went over the tech articles here and also searched but have a few questions. 84 c-10, I found a 12 bolt that has 3:73 gearing non posi that I want to get rebuilt for my dieing 10 bolt that is in the truck right now.
I would like to add a posi unit as I use the truck for daily driving and weekend fishing trips thru mud and snow, So basically a stock rebuild. Currently I have 2:73 in the 10 bolt rear , could be wrong on the number but its very close. Looking on the web I will need to install different carrier for the use of different gearing, which should not be a issue since I am going to use a eaton posi. Any other issues I need to address? Its looking like it will run me about 1000-1200 dollars for new parts and labor? Thanks for any tips , or feedback.
