Reman or Rebuild? Weigh Your Truck Engine Options

Follow Me

Whether you’re dealing with a planned overhaul or an unplanned failure, one thing’s for sure: Replacing your truck engine requires an outlay of both time and money. That’s the bad news. The good news? You have options—and choosing the right one for your situation can help keep expense and downtime to a minimum.

Let’s take a closer look at the pros and cons of what’s available.

Engine Rebuild1. Buy a re-manufactured engine

Choosing a reman engine may be your best bet when it comes to saving both time and money, especially for unplanned failures. Reman engines are available off the shelf to get you back on the road fast. You also get same-as-new quality and a same-as-new warranty at 20-35%* off the cost of new.

That said, if you’re running an older truck, it may not be in your financial best interests to invest in a complete reman engine. Rebuilding may be a smarter option.

2.  Let Foley RIG360 rebuild your engine

If buying a new or same-as-new engine isn’t in your budget, consider using Foley RIG360 Truck Service for your next engine rebuild. Foley RIG360 has certified professionals who will rebuild your engine using genuine OE engine parts and OE reman components when available to keep costs down.

We can offer a Dyno on your rebuilt engine and back the entire rebuild with a warranty.

3. Rebuild engine yourself

Have time and expertise on your side? Think about doing the rebuild yourself. You won’t pay labor—and by taking advantage of re-manufactured diesel engine parts, you can save even more. Buying reman turbochargers, reman starters, reman fuel injectors and other components off the shelf keeps repair time and costs down.  Contact Foley RIG360 for your Precious Metals overhaul kits to ensure it meets your overhaul needs.
