Buying a 2006 Kingranch with blown motor

Hey fellas i need some input and opinions from you. I have an oportunity to purchase an 06 kingranch project truck with a possible blown motor. Truck runs but prev. owner fired it up on a cold day and mashed on the gas and screwed something up, some clanking and really rough running if runs at all . Knowing little about the motor i want to buy it and bullet proof it as some call it. Tear it down and make the 6.0 what it should be. I need a ball park figure on a rebuild with a complete kit for the weeklinks. I can purchase this truck for $10,000 as is 70,000mi 4x4 auto. I have tried to get a ball park figure from a few shops with no luck. How far will 10,000 - 12,000 get me on rebuilding a 6.0 might be an easier question to answer .....? what is a kingranch worth with no motor or blown motor?

97 2wd ZF 5 (trashed the auto)
3" MBRP Down Pipe
Straight muffler
DIY Intake
TS Tuner
gauges coming very soon
