I'm trying to get the wife on board with trading this thing in before more problems pop up. Only have 8000 miles left on 3yr/36000 warranty.
Wow,...surprised that your dealer did not catch some indication of an impending hose failure before this ! Just me, but I'd start having my truck serviced at a different dealer in the future if you don't trade off. Think I'd also change the oil now if your truck has overheated, those molecules don't reconstitute back in the same way.
