All I will say is if they dont want to fix it under warranty, then dont let them fix it when your paying! Used low mileage engines can be had at a decent prices now-a-days and any decent mechanic can swap a engine... I wouldnt be surprised if you can get the whole thing done for under $2k depending on how hard you want to look. There are lots of salvage yards online, hell I found a 5.7l hemi for $2k with 20k miles on it....
In my opinion they should replace it under warranty, what good is a lifetime warranty when there is nothing to use it on. Problem is it sounds like you will have to fight him for it...Try taking it to another dealership, prolly would be worth traveling out of town if you have to.
I just noticed you have a 07, unless you picked up a warranty package somewhere you might be out of luck in that department.
