What kind of tripod could I expect to purchase for the Arri IIc? I'm looking to spend under $1k.

To my knowledge there is nothing out there for that price. You will probably have to rent.

Check out bhphotovideo.com . Some of the bogen tripods for around $1000 claim to support 35 pounds.

Supporting the camera is one thing. Keeping the camera steady is something else especially when panning and tilting.

The cine 60 flat base coupled with a bogen 316 on 3191 sticks works great for my 2C. I think I put the head and sticks together for under $800. It isn't a sachtler or a o'conner, but it works pretty well for the price. Don't buy any of those ones that are a cradle for the motor... they are all pretty ancient and not very good in my experience.
