Engine locked up

My 04 engine locked up 5.9L on 2500 single axle shortbed.

should i rebuild, find used engine, or get new one (remanufactured)

if i should rebuild, any good sources for kits?

where can i order a rebuild manual.

Its goin to be a toss up in my opinion between rebuilding and finding a new or used engine depending on your cash flow. Im gunna say tear it apart and see how bad its messed up inside due to the fact that it locked up something hit pretty hard. All the used engine i seen were about $5500 and up depending on miles.
