My cost was in the neighborhood of $3000 and I already had a clutch pedal and clutch linkage. I recouped a little of it by selling my NV4500 plus it's parts but it was easily $2500 when all was said and done. In my case it was a tax write-off so that helped too. My incentive was a trail of broken transmissions, so in that regard it has paid for itself. I'm not sure but I think it has about a half million on it now, with two minor repairs.
97 3500, 2 WD, G56, slightly bombed, 1.3 million miles with un-additized diesel fuel. Started the second million on 8/24/13
If you are lucky enough to be in Texas, you are lucky enough.
