put an engine in it, because by the time you part it out you wont make as much money into it as you would with a blown engine in it.

Please replace it! I'd hate to see your truck all torn apart and parted out.

Just replace that engine. It's not like your swapping in the $25,000 LS7.

do you have the stock parts? you could sell off your lift and wheels/tires to pay for a new engine. But ya you should be able to get her fixed for $1200 tops

i vote for a v8 swap.

seriously, i'm sure to swap the motor out wouldn't be that hard. i've never done one. but from all the motor sawp threads i;ve seen it doesn't look too hard.

disconnect all fluid/electrical/fuel lines
undo all mounts
pull out
install is reverse of above

if you don't have the room or tools, i'm sure someone would hook you up. that is way too nice a truck to part out.
