Most places charge atleast $1500 to lift and replace cab on top of the labor for whatever you want done. The shop near my house charges $2k just for lifting cab. It gets very expensive quick!!
That's why I'm either gonna do some major upgrades all at once, or wait untill I have a major repair... Or both lol.
I agree with pulling the cab if you ever do studs and gaskets. Right now, there is a national shortage of good ole ARP 2000s so they are about impossible to find which would leave you with Elite's 1722s at the price DieselFeverDisease mentioned. If ARP ever produces a new batch and there isn't a shortage, you can get them around $500 (I have seen them as low as $480 and as high $599). Labor rates will vary some depending on where you live. I have never priced replacing the stud/gaskets on a truck that hasn't blown a HG already (which adds quite a bit to the price), but on average, studs and gaskets on a truck with a blown gasket will run you around $3600 to $4400,
