Default Crate Motor vs Rebuild

I am as confused as ever with what to do with the 360 out of my jeep. I got a quote from the local machine shop to include all possible labor for just the bottom end and a master rebuild kit. I know I'm going to need to do some head work as well due to some slight pitting in the valves (some had almost an 1/8th inch of carbon build up) and I have not even priced that yet. At a possibility of $2200 and I do all of the assembly, which requires a few tool purchases, it got me thinking about going another route.

After looking around last night I found:

300hp and 360ft/lbs at $2200 is going to be hard to beat. Shipping is $175 and a $350 core charge and wouldn't be too much more than just the tools i need to buy for the bottom end and rebuild the valvetrain.

I will not swap in a chebby 350.
