Depends, it isn't that hard to do yourself, but the trans will need to come out. It will cost you a hell of allot more to take it some place, but its what you feel comfortable with...

well my parents got a quote for ares to be done for about $1500. It came to like I think $3000 for them to do the clutch and all that and the oil pan seal. Lets see I got all the parts for about $500 and did it myself. Really taking the transmission out isn't the hard part but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!! spray everything down every day for a week before you take it off and if you have a power washer wash everything under the truck before you start. God I should have done both those things before I did mine. I can take my transmission out in just under 2 hours with the help of something.
