noise then it was like someone put the truck into nuetral now the truck only moves when 4

transfer case that blew?

That sounds like a transmission. Extremely common on a Dodge ram. The transfer case is only engaged when the 4x4 is on.

Have you checked your fluid level in the transmission?

Is the fluid level low in the transmission and or the transfer case? If its not low the pump in the transmission is probably shot then.
