its not going to be very hard to build it yourself if you know what your doing, but its always better to have it done professionally and to spend the extra dollars to ensure that it will be done correctly. and for a rebuild replacement your looking probably at around 1200-1600 if you do it yourself. but it could vary.

Call a local transmission shop and ask them about a rebuild / replace / adjustment. Get an estimate and take the amount off the truck's value.
