1500dodge is on a distinguished road

I have a 1500 cuad cab 03. And I bough it with a knocking on the motor. Now I had a mechanic checked it before buying it and he told me that it wasn't going to last more then a month. I have a motor that came out of a dodge Durango 4.7 and I bought it cheap and the mechanic is working on it swap in it but he called me today and said that the motor has the same problem that cilinder8 is in bad shape just as bad as my old one and the crankshaft is in bad shape too just as bad. So I'm screwed because I'm 1600 in a whole an no truck. The question is Is that a common problem with the 4.7 engine that the cilinder#8 goes bad. I'm afraid I can't afford another motor because everywhere I have look its $1800 or more and I don't know if should keep buying engines if this truck has a factory problem on its engines and its going to break again?
