They will do all of that at one time. It will not cost that much. They have to pull the motor to do the oil pan so they can do the headgaskets and the rear seal at the same time and drastically lower the cost. You need to take it to a real mechanic shop and let them tell you what you need.

Yep, sounds like about $2500 for some o-rings to me...

I'd strongly want to know why they feel it needs a new pan and rear seal. Why did you take it in the shop in the first place?

Head gaskets would be more obvious than the other two. For that much work your truck must run like crap?
