Default Engine Rebuild Kit

I just totaled my Ram, and am attempting to buy it back from my insurance company. First thing to do will be rebuild the engine since it's locked up. Are there any kits available to get a ballpark on cost? By the way, I have a spare 360 on a stand in the garage that I blew up 3 months ago. Has bent valves and possibly bottom end damage. Current motor took on water when the truck rolled into a river. What's my best option?

Rolled as in coasted into the water. Not on its side. Motor is locked up from the water that flowed into it.
