Yeah, that shouldn't happen. Not sure we have the full story here. Looking at that tire, this truck hasn't had an easy life, but frames still shouldn't crack through unless the truck has been seriously abused/heavily stressed beyond design criteria. If you feel your case is strong, talk to a lawyer.

If you overloaded the truck, I would expect the leaf spring bracket and shackle to fail first. That's what happened to me with a bumper pull trailer with a tongue weight just over 1,400 lbs. The frame shouldn't fail first.

However, if you're towing a gooseneck or fifth wheel trailer I can see where the frame would break in that spot.

not only that, but the spare wasn't rotated into the mix... .

What are the specs on your dump trailer and how often did you check the actual tongue weight?
