Yep, this happens when the torque converter falls apart and locks up the engine to the transmission, so when you put in gear it stalls the engine much like a stick shift car when you let the clutch out too fast. It could also be a vacuum leak which this guide can help find, test it with the engine cold:
If you can shoot a quick video so i can see the engine stall, I can tell for sure. You might want to try holding the idle up a little when you put it in gear, if the truck tries to take off you know it is the converter. Let me know what you find.
