How much for a complete engine rebuilt

Hey ! i was just wondering how much a complete engine rebuilt would cost me approximately. Mine got over half a million without a single issue but the oil pan but eventualy it will probably die lol and i found a complete wrecked truck, its a 2002 F-250 4x4 auto for $2500, i think this is a good deal, i would probably keep the engine and drivetrain and sell the rest. What do you guys think !

my thought ( and a free bump) is sounds good if the motor is good, Buying that truck is most likey cheaper than rebuilding the motor ( lots of labor). also i like your rig too very clean. i also like that quote in your sig, i sh!t you not i need a ladder to change my oil filter in my truck haha
