Fix it or Not?

OK guys, i need some advice. We (company) have an 03 in the shop, they say new injectors needed for 5500$ and that doesn't begin to address the oil consumption of 1 quart per 500 miles. The truck has about 170,00 miles on it. It is a crew cab dually that has not been treated gently. Fix it or replace it?

It will be far cheaper to fix it then to buy a completely new truck. Depending on the problem with the injectors, they might be your oil consumption issue.
