I bought a 98 Dodge Ram 3500 and after getting it home it will not restart so I took both battery's in and had them checked and they were shot so I replaced them. I also made sure there was enough diesel fuel in the truck and it all seems to be fine along with all the fluids but it will will crank now but will not restart any suggestions on where to start?

Check for blown fuses and ensure the glow plugs are working correctly.

Looks can be deceiving. You need to test and confirm.
Ensure the fuel cut solenoid at fuel pump has battery voltage while cranking and the solenoid is kicking in
