Looking for suggestions

I took my 5.7 in because it was running funny one morning and throwing a Cylinder 4 Misfire code. Dealership cracked it open and discovered a bad head and that the ceramic insulator around the electrode on the spark plug had broken off. Apparently it had been bouncing around in the cylinder and scored the walls of the cylinder. My aftermarket warranty won't cover it because they blame all the damage on the on the plug. Dealership is quoting me $8.5-9.5K to replace the engine. The truck is a 2010 Laramie and has 105K on it.



I'm on the fence as to whether or not it's worth it to repair. Any constructive suggestions/recommendations are welcome.

That's what I was thinking, but my truck is what I would tow with lol. I'll have to call in reinforcements. I appreciate all the quick responses though.

whatever you do, DO NOT use montway transport! They are the most unreliable company I have ever dealt with. They contract with some shady transporters and have no idea how to check the people they hire.

I rented a u-haul truck and trailer to haul my 88' GMC Jimmy from Florida to Mississippi, cost me $400.00 for that one way trip. Tranny went out after being rebuilt.
