Try new HT leads, cap, rotor and plugs. It's cheaper than a new engine and if it doesn't work you can save them for another engine if need be. Could be something like a valve seat burnt or a sticking valve, plug breaking down or a lead breaking down. Far cheaper to change leads etc then the engine.
TIP>>> if you change the leads first, unplug No.1 and replace, then No.2 etc. Test the running after and if problem still there, change the plugs 1 at a time to avoid mixing the leads up, test and if still there, change the cap and rotor, identify a mark on the cap that matches the old cap, hold above the old cap in the same orientation as it, and move the leads to the new cap, remove old and fit new(not forgetting the rotor) test, if the problem is still there, do a compression test, if the misfiring cylinder is low on compression it suggests a valve problem, or a possible gasket leak.

Replace the oxigen sensor and the cat.If its not eusing oil then i dont think your engine needs to be replaced.Also check your air filter is not dirty and add some injector cleaner.to the fuel.Good luck hope that was helpfull.

Random misfire means all cylinders are affected, so a shop may review the Freeze Frame and dtermine what is happeneing. I think all the air doors are electric on your truck, so the actuator may be the problem, but i would not guess as these sometimes are a real pain to replace.

Dodge recommends new plugs at 60k. If that engine, I don't remember off hand, has a coil pack over overy plug, try switching the coil to a different plug and see if the missfire moves. If it does then you need a coil, if it doesnt then its the plug.
