Poor Clifford, Lets hope its something simple! Never good sight being on the hook.

Just got off the phone with the dealer and they said that the engine light is out and the truck still will not start. They are saying that it is possibly bad gas because i recently filled it up... I dont think it is becasue it was acting up before the fill up.... There still digging and will let me know shortly...

A fuel sample and ethanol test should confirm or eliminate fuel as a cause.

It looks like it wasn't towed very far (Racicot?) but seeing it being towed like that reminded me of what I read in the manual:

Four-Wheel Drive Vehicles
The manufacturer recommends towing with all wheels OFF the ground. Acceptable methods are to tow the vehicle on a flatbed or with one end of vehicle raised and the opposite end on a towing dolly. If flatbed equipment is not available, and the transfer
case is operable, the vehicle may be towed (in the forward direction, with
ALL wheels on the ground), IF the transfer case is in NEUTRAL and the transmission is in PARK. Refer to “Recreational Towing” in “Starting And Operating” for further information.




CAUTION!





Front or rear wheel lifts should not be used.



Internal damage to the transmission or transfer

case will occur if a front or rear wheel lift is used
when towing.









Failure to follow these towing methods can cause

severe damage to the transmission and/or transfer


case. Such damage is not covered by the New
Vehicle Limited Warranty.







I'm not sure what the real world implications are of this or if it even matters but like I said, after seeing the way your truck was towed I thought I should mention it.
