Double Craigslist prices where though? Anywhere in SoCal?

I've seen smaller shorties with less desirable engines for $5k-$6k around here but that's the closest I've gotten. Granted I'm no expert and haven't been looking long, but I'm trying to get this on the road in 4 months or so.

Thanks. I've been checking CL but haven't seen anything to the specs I'm after.

..and to be clear there are several Chevy 6.5s for much less but I've been advised to stay clear of that engine.

The 6.5 is a great motor but the injection pump is a known weak spot. Given the difference in age (the 6.5 fully replaced the 6.2) I wouldn't reaaaaally expect longer life out of a 6.2's pump, and the replacement cost is about the same. It's about $700 for a rebuilt unit from a reputable shop.
