Looking for some info

So Monday on the way to work my 2008 F250 started smoking an was running ruff. The dealership just call and needs 19,000.00 to fix it. Number 7 piston is down and needs a new long block. So what are my options as I am not going to spend 19K on a 20K truck?? What would you do??

Don't deal with the dealer they will tell you that you need a new motor,I had taken mine in for a knocking and power loss they stated #7was dead and all it was is a broken rocker arm and bent push rod they wanted 15.000.00 to replace motor. Replaced rocker arms and push rods for 2000.00
