Why don't you call Texas Towers, get the prices for ALL
of the material you would need and add it up YOURSELF?

(Actually, I expect Texas Towers would even add it up for you).

Then call a professional tower installer (K7LXC is one) and
get a quote on the cost of installation of each approach?

YOU could even call multiple sources and compare prices.
