Default Rooting MK2/4.3? Is it Possible? What are my options?

Verizon just replaced my S3 for an S4 due to my specific model/color being out of stock.

I had rooted my previous S3, but that first one broke and the replacement they sent had the locked bootloader. Fortunatley (?) the power button was wonkey causing all sorts of issues, so they replaced it with this S4.

Now, I'm guessing the bootloader is locked on this as well, correct? If so, then what can I do? I would love to install Cyanogenmod on it, but I'm guessing that's not an option. I've searched here and other forums, but haven't found much on this particluar build. The build on this phone is: i545vruemk2, running 4.3.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, but I swear I searched. However, I only searched using this and the other forums built-in search function. I also didn't google that exact phrase that you did. I think it was something like "root i545vruemk2" which wasn't helpful. Anyways, thanks!
