Sorry you are having some troubles. First to better assist you we will need more specific information on your vehicle. I know you said it was a Dodge Ram, but is it a 1500, 1500 etc. Also, there are several V8 engines.5.2L, 5.9L etc. It would really be better to provide the 8th letter in your Vin with the other info. This is more specific to your engine also.
With that it may be electrical - is a spark getting to the plugs or it may be fuel. The fuel pump may not be up to pressure. So we will be glad to provide some guidance there.
If you can get it started to get it home, please stop by Auto Zone or O'Reilly's and for free they can pull the codes to the car. Most important. Once they check your codes, if they find something and you don't get it fixed and need to get back with us, please make sure you tell us exactly what the code was, number and all. Example, if the code was E0568 O2 Sensor bad. Then make sure you give us all of that. While there for free also they can bring their tester out and check your battery, alternator and starter. This is also very important. The nice thing is it is all free.
If you can do those things we will be better to answer your questions.
Hope this helps - let us know -
