My starter just makes a click sound when I turn the key. I repalced the starter and check the grounds from the battery to the body and frame. Also when i try to start it a couple of times the power wire from the battery gets very hot.

Yes it sounds like the starter solenoid is worn or you've got a loose engine ground cable. Check to make sure that your engine's ground cables are in good shape, rust free, and secured tightly. The solenoid is part of the starter assembly and cannot be replaced separately.
If you are sure that all connections are clean and bright, including the battery to the ground and battery cable to the solenoid, jumper from the battery (+) to the solenoid (+). If the solenoid clicks, but motor doesn't turn over, your solenoid is bad. Try jumpering momentarily from the battery (+) to the starter (+) and that should cause the starter to rotate. If that makes your starter rotate, your solenoid is still bad. Be sure that your starter has a good ground connection
As you said when you try to start sound come and end it with a click click sound it clearly symptoms that battery low and as you said light are also dim, if you charged battery same problem you have, then check wire which run from battery to starter is lose or not and 2nd wire which runs from battery to body ground if both are ok, then sir it is problem in starter motor armature is short with body, replace that or better replace full starter assay.
