jack up car ,remove front wheel ,brake caliper, and rotor, so now you have just studs and backing plate ,with a hammer and punch , drive out broken stud and go to your local parts store with broken part an and lug nut for that wheel, this is the hard part put new stud in hole that you punched the broken one out of and drive it in with a hammer or if you have a stud driver ,as far as it will go ,don't worry if you cant seat it all the way ,when you reassemble everything back on when you tighten lug nuts it will seat it the remander of the way ,BE SURE TO RETORQUE IT AFTER A SHORT DRIVR 20-30 MILES AND RE CHECK IT AT DIFFERNT INTERVlLES to make sure it's seated and tight. ok that's it in a nut shell ,hope this gets it done for you .good luck .
If you can find just the studs and not have to buy the whole hub assembly, screw a lug nut on flush to the stud and drive it out with a hammer, make sure its in a position to have room on the back side. Put in new stud and with a few spacers tighten a lug nut to seat it.
Did it come off because the lug nuts broke off or came loose, or did the hub bearing come apart and cause the wheel, rotor, and brake caliper to come off? If the just the lug nuts just came off and the threads are still ok and there is no damage to the wheel holes put the tire back on with one lug nut from each of the other tires, or use your spare if there is wheel damage. If the wheel studs are damaged and you can get new ones, have them replaced. If the hub brng came apart and the axle (4x4) is ok the brng assembly will need along with all damaged parts. This is a common problem with dodge pu.
you don`t say if its front or rear lug nut(assuming you mean stud).remove the wheel and then the drum or rotor,then take a hammer and hit the broken stud to remove it from the hub assembly.with the correct wheel stud insert it through the hole and make sure its in straight,install the wheel nut and tighten the nut to pull the stud into the hub until all the way in.you may have to install washer on the stud and re-install the nut and tighten until the stud is seated all the way.

Install wheel and tire assembly. Tighten lug nut to 115-142Nm (85-104 lb-ft).
Only if there is an Acsess Hole Directly Behind the STUD'S PUNCH THE Broken SHORT one OUT But there May Not Be Enough ROOM FOR the NEW LONG STUD to go in between the HUB & Rotor Check this FIRST If you see GOOD CLEARANCE TO GET The new STUD in Then just Drive the old one out , and Use A LARGER than Stud Nut Or Washers to Pull New Stud Threw some Before Putting Wheel on. Then Put Wheel on And Tighten Wheel , Retorque after a Few Hundred Miles.
The lugs must be pounded out with a heavy mallet, the new ones can be put back in as much as possible, make sure they are straight, and then use your lug wrench to tighten on the lug nut and keep turning until the lug is fully seated.
Well, I can't see the tie rods so I can't help you there. But, if someone placed just one lug nut on the wheel then it probably elongated the slots on the other four holes for the studs. This would make the wheel junk and would need to be replaced. This probably ruined all the threads on the studs also. You are very lucky you did not have an accident related to the wheel. I wish I could see the vehicle, but can't help unless I know the situiation and condition of suspension parts.
