Need everyone's help ASAP!

Ok so here's the rundown a friend of mine bought his son a 2010 f250 4x4. Then he went and put a lift, tires, wheels, exhaust, tuner etc and gave it to him for his 16th birthday. 1 1/2 months later his son blew it up. The truck needs a complete new engine, rebuilt or new tranny, new radiator, new intercooler, new tranny cooler, fuel tank and a rebuilt rearend. Oh and a new set of 37s that he burnt off before the motor went boom. My question to you guys is how much would you charge on something like this? Me and 1 other guy are going to be doing the swap and I'm not sure how much to charge. Any ballpark estimates? Like I said the engine is completed trash(pistons, crank and everything are FUBARed) so it need a complete engine. Thanks in advance guys!

Tell him to junk it and get his son a Kia Rio until he learns some respect. That would be a whole lot cheaper, and MUCH more valuable over the kids lifetime.

That truck is probably a write off with that much damage. A remanufactured engine alone is $9-$12k. You're probably looking at that same figure to replace or repair everything else. That kid deserves a bus pass if you want to be nice. If you really want to teach him a lesson, let him walk or ride a bike.

Buy it all from Ford, mark it up more, and charge regular labor rate. He might just be dumb enough to pay it.

A kid in my town got a cabellas 6.4. Put a spartan on it and exhaust. Rolled it a few weeks ago. It's a shame. Some kids just don't know how lucky they have it.
