Here is a previous similar question about Ram brake job which might help -

But what it costs depends on whether you go to a brake/muffler place (which I emphatically recommend AGAINST), to a normal Auto Service shop, or a Dealer - commonly a 2:1 increase in cost between the first and last, and 25-50% difference between normal shop and dealer.


Even more, what you define as a "full set of brakes" matters a lot - simple brake pad replacement, with the rotors thick enough and not warped so reusable and the cylinders and flex lines being good (say first brake pad replacement - rotors commonly last 2 sets of pads) might run you $200-500 for both axles depending on where you go - commonly about 25% more if using OEM parts. Add flex brake lines (the ones that connect the metal lines to the wheels), rebuilding or replacing brake cylinders or pistons and sleeves, replacing calipers entirely, or replacing rotors because of wear or warping can add roughly $30-70 per wheel per each of those items pretty quick - so full replacement of all those on both axles could easily take you over $1000 and even to probably $1500 range at dealership for the job.
