I've been working on my Ram for a week now. I've swapped out the distributor cap and rotor, the ignition coil is good, wires and hoses are all fine, i dont have a scan tool so i cant figure out off hand what else is wrong. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Check the Timing, see if you have spark, check fuel pressure, make sure you have the battery grounded the all the cables are cleaned well and you have 12 Volts.
