Our beastie died. Need a bus. southern ohio

Killed this 5.9. The bus was only $2500. A new motor installed is more. Looking for something around $2000. Help this Dead family out. Summer tour is calling...Lock'n is near.

If the tires are good, you might want to keep them

Can't limp it home at 30mph? Granted that's a long haul but easier to replace an engine than everything else. First listing is $1600. Don't know anything about 5.9s. Apparently there are 12 valve and 24 valve.

The block is cracked. Its done. I only have 2500 in the bus. It will cost that or more for a new engine installed. I'm on the road and don't have a place or way too switch out a motor
