What to do when motor goes?

So the way I see it is in bout another year I'll be over 200,000 on my 03 6.0. I maintain it very well but dont see it going to much over that without studs and egr delete.Im not saying it won't last longer but I also am going to keep this truck for many years. At that many miles though I would want to think about going with a rebuild or reman but heard the remans were nothing but crap. Is that true or just bad luck again with the 6.0s.

anybody think that the 6.0 remans are crap though? I hate to spend 7 grand on one and have it go bad quick.

Ya I know about the site I use to live an hour from kalispell where there located. My only question bout the deal is how does our ford tranny work with the cummins. I mean our tranny wont shift up to 4000 rpm sometimes and a cummins losses power over 2500rpm roughly speaking. Can you change the settings in it to adjust for that? Also where would be the best place to buy a new cummins?
