    Think of the Thousands of dollars that you'd save if you would only do some of the work yourself, wow.

    Should have just knocked that leaf back in place so it tracks straight. This truck will be a learning experience because it will cost too much to fix without doing most of the work yourself but I’m subscribed. Btw could have just took off the outer dually wheel and it would have fit.

    I'm not trying to be mean I'm just trying to be honest. I think you're in the wrong business buddy. You didn't even know how to pronounce the name of the engine. You don't even know the basic parts of the vehicle. You spend thousands on a trailer that is the wrong size. Paying other people to fix the vehicle you might as well almost buy one that hasn't been in an accident. Maybe cars aren't your thing. I'm just trying to help because it seems like you love blowing money. You might as well burn it. If you don't want the money give it to me LOL

    Doesn't anyone physically measure anything anymore? Tape measures cost about $5 bucks. C'mon man!

    Towing a one ton four door dually pick up behind a half ton pick up not the smartest thing I've ever seen.

    I've hauled a few dually Dodges on trailers like that and if the front lug nuts will get past the insides of the trailer's fenders, you're golden, just run the outside duals up to the rear of the fenders.
    If the front tire's lug nuts DON'T clear, but the front wheels will still fit safely on the deck, put boards down on the deck to drive up on, next to the fenders, which will raise the wheels up, to get the lugnuts to pass above the fenders.
    As long as the rear wheels will sit behind the fenders and the front wheels are on the deck, you should be able to get it tied down.
    The engine, front axle, transmission and transfer case would be ahead of the front trailer axle, so there will be plenty of tongue weight to keep it from swaying on you.
    On your frame damage, the 2013-2017 Dodges don't take front end hits very well, most of the time the frame buckles at the rear of the cab, even in a light, but direct, front end hit, which is easy to spot by checking the bed-to-cab gap.
    Also, check for recalls items on this truck, as there are at least 2 recalls out there that will cause the thing to burn down.
    One is the water pump and another is the fuel heater.

    Not to be a jerk or anything but please explain to me why you haven't replaced the spring shock and the shock absorber yourself that is the most simple thing you could do is get the driveline and the spring put back right...

    My advise to you is to put a used frame and used box on the truck. May want to buy another truck hit hard high up on the left with motor damage and use yours for parts

    They didn't want to touch it because of the bent frame in front of the leaf spring hanger.
