You probably ran it out of oil and blew something in the engine. Did you pull the stick and see if there was any oil on it? If the stick is bare, you may have done too much damage already. Hopefully, the ASD relay kicked on and saved the truck. Not sure how the ASD is activated on a Dodge. But in your case, I hope it shut the truck down. Fill truck with oil, and replace ASD relay. See if it will start.
