How hard to rebuild or just fix E40D

I'm looking at buying a 1996 F-350 with the E40D. The transmission has a problem where reverse is basically shot. They say it can get around the yard a bit but couldn't do much else.

How hard to fix?
How hard to do a rebuild of the tranny myself or and price range if a tranny shop does it?

P.S I'm not looking to do much upgrading to the transmission only because it's going to be a winter plow truck and not my main hauling machine

A rebuilt tranny will run between $1500-$2500 depending on what all is bad and who does it.

A plain rebuild will run around $250 for parts not counting the converter and labor. I did a high end build on mine last winter and dropped about $800 in the parts and almost a grand on the converter and I was quoted $5400+core to build what I have now.

Nothing stock left on her and not a nut, bolt, hose, or wire on there that I didn't put where it is.
