Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck has 306,xxx but I believe it can last a little bit

riding around in the mountains. I am just wondering if it
would better to replace or rebuild my engine

If the engine runs good I would not bother. For a full rebuild done right you are talking 5 grand or so not counting pulling the engine and reinstalling it. Shop around but I think you will find it is hard to find a shop that will rebuild the engine.
