new member, oil leak problem

Hi, I am new here. I have a 2010 Tundra, 4.7, with 133,000 miles. Oil leak started recently, the dealership says its $3600 to fix. Mostly labor, need to remove the engine. Timing link or cam area leak, they need to remove the engine to fix it. What do I do? I'm concerned about removing the engine, feel like this will be the first of many problems.
But I love my truck. Any recommendations?

I would take it to some place you trust that isn't a dealer or trade it in. $3600 sounds absurd.
