Need advise ASAP on 6.0 FICM.. is it safe to drive??

Heres my story. Truck would start slowly, (low rpms then raise) since i bought it a few months ago. Starts cold really rough, but does start, and run great once warmed up. Starts and runs fine when plugged in*


NOW, I drove 700 miles to SC from NJ last week. The truck sat for a few days after. Wont start.(fires but wont stay) I plug it in and start it a few hours later. Runs rough, but starts.. runs great warm after a while. Take it to advanced auto. they run code... No codes come up. THey do a battery test. One battery is DEAD. Killed the ficm i bet!!

Now heres the dilemma. Im pretty sure its the ficm. Im spending another week and a half here... Not much driving, if any... I have to drive back to make a cruise I booked. And get back to work. Is it safe to drive it home 700 miles? Or should I risk sending it out and not getting it back in time etc. Something breaking etc. What should I do?

Safe to drive home?? Thanks guys!!
