Keep it as it is. Nothing new will last that long.

Check odometer. May be it was only 50,000 miles?

Mopar crate 6.4 with 485 horsepower runs about 7k these days. Otherwise if you need to repower on more of a budget you can freshen up your bottom end and clean up the heads pretty cheaply. Throw a cam in while you have it apart and proceed another 500k

Didn't gun25boat rebuild his 5.7 into a 6. something when be blew it up? You might be able to go that route if it can be sidelined for a bit during the rebuild.

Stay away from Jasper. They've had some issues. :roll:

Pull the motor out and freshen it up. This gives you a clean sheet. OR keep the motor in and see how far it going before it dies.

Not a bad price for an entire new mill. However my vote is still for a shiny new one at those miles.

I put one of these in on my 07 about 16 months ago when I dropped a valve seat it has 25k miles on it so far and has been rock solid, smooth with plenty of power. The warranty on mine was 3yrs or 100k miles.

Something to consider, I also replaced all the motor's sensors, air filter, serpentine belt, idler pulleys, starter and Hemi hat resonatory because they reuse all that stuff and I got it cheaper online myself.

It took them about 2.5 days to pull out the old motor, pull off and reinstall all the reusable parts (oil pan, timing cover, valve covers, intake manifold, emission-control parts, fuel injection system, the exhaust manifolds, alternator, starter, power steering pump, and air conditioner compressor) and put the new motor in, 21 hours worth of labor. Different dealers have different labor rates per hour.

That means you are in well over 7K with new sensors, water pump, ect, probably close to 8K. Nice down payment on something with 0 miles.

so was the 06 best year any one else with half million miles still running good no issues,so its time for transplant soon. To be honest a new truck is good news however this one is easier to maintain,and everything has been redone power train besides engine.
