$2000 all in for an engine swap isn't terrible, and 98,000 km is low mileage...gamble there is you have no maintenance history on the new engine and no idea how hard those 98,000 km's were driven.
Somewhere down the line you gotta ask yourself if you're going to keep pouring money into a fifteen year old truck.
Things aren't going to get any better as far as breakdowns go, but I understand not everyone's in a position to buy new.
There's a healthy used market out there , say for something that's 5 years old, but that's going to depend on where you're at budget wise.
On the flip side, you might spend the cash and get 150,000 km out of it no problem.
