Does anyone have experience replacing galvanized piping? I'm looking
at a place that shows some signs of rusting galvanized pipe. Water
pressure is still good, but I'm worried I may have to have it replaced
in the next 5 or 10 years. How long can this pipe last, and how much
might it cost to replace? I know there are many contributing factors,
but I'm curious what peoples' experience with this is.

Take the galv out and replace with pex or agua pex this can be pulled
through walls by attaching to the galv as you pull sect of pipe out
cost is less and life is 25 to 40 yrs. Galv is very expensiv and
requires a good pipe fitter possible a threader $$. Pex will do the
job fine and you can do it yourself.
Replace all of the under sink supply valves with quarter turn ball valves.
Since you have galvanized now it makes it easy and you will never have to
worry about the damn valve leaking or not being able to shut of the water to
the sink when you need to fix it.
If you are not part of the solution, you are not dissolved in the solvent.
