Here is a previous similar question with answer -

Parts for your (upper housing and thermostat) is about $25 aftermarket or about $125 OEM dealer list price. You said "lower housing" - could not readily call up a parts diagram on your vehicle not knowing specifics of engine, but the lower housing is generally part of the intake manifold casting or water pup housing. IF a bolt-on part probably included in above or another $10-15 - if it has corroded out a thermostat recess on a manifold you are talking probably another $500+ replacement, if on the water pump housing new water pump installed probably $250-500 additional depending on accessibility - which on a lot of vans is a nightmare, sometimes requiring front grill and radiator removal and such.

Ahhh - found a photo and parts breakout of that part - the thermostat housing and thermostat comes as a complete unit for list $129 (at Mopar site I found it at anyway) - presumably has the gaskets too, but if not just another few bucks for them.

So - that amount plus probably about $100-150 labor at a normal shop, or about $200 labor if at a Dodge/Chrylser dealer, I would guess.
