WHY WON'T THE RADIO, GAGES AND ENGINE WORK?

1987 Dodge Ram • 88,560 miles

Drove the truck 60 miles and everything worked fine including radio. Stopped to get gas, started and drove fine, got to my road less than 2 miles away and it dies right when I am about to pull into my driveway. It will crank but not turn over and the gages and radio will not work but the lights do work. Checked all the fuses and they are fine. Sprayed starter fluid into carburetor and that did not work. Please help!

You are on the right track. Basics. Check for fuel pressure, compression and spark. Once you determine what is missing, then we can move forward.
