Why don't you call a local machine shop and get a price on a rebuild. Pulling the motor is not rocket science. I'm guessing you could get a good rebuild for about 20% of what the dealer quoted you. Honestly, you could probably get by with rings and bearings and a valve job. Probably could squeak another 100K+ doing just that and you should be able to accomplish that for less than a grand.

2003 F-250 XLT Crew Cab 7.3L, Chrome BigTex Grille Guard, Quad pillar - 3 ISSPRO gauges (trans, pyro, boost) and DP-Tuner F6; Roush fuel pressure / temperature / oil pressure gauges, Ford Severe Duty AIS, 31 row 6.0 transmission cooler, ScanGauge II, Marinco mod, Walker BTM, Full Force Stage 1 injectors

IF MY BODY IS EVER FOUND ON A JOGGING TRAIL JUST KNOW THAT I WAS MURDERED SOMEWHERE ELSE AND DUMPED THERE
