For $20 and 30 min of your time try changing the fuel filter maybe you sloshed some crud in the line?? Maybe check for a loose battery cable. You jarred something loose? Good luck

if this is a standard gearbox ,that stop jolt stops the engine real quick untill the clutch disengages the connection, if that even happened, a one way clutch in the converter on automatics is to safeguard a jolt, cause it sounds like your engine is froze

dodge doesn't use inertia switches. do like heich25 says, and also check all fuses and relays.

push it backwards down a steep hill and lock.it up real hard again. lol maybe thatll.straighten.it out.

is it an.automatic? im.assuming so. did u actually hit anything? ditch?.fence? a real truck?

wonder if you dont need to go have the seatbelts reset or some shit. my wifes honda had to have that done. the seatbelt safety thing got triggerred in a minor fender bender but it made that car a paper weight tol she took it to the dealer
