a few days ago my truck had issues with shifting

home and parked. next day i couldnt shift into gear
at all while the truck was running. with the truck
not running i can shift into gear with no problems.

Sounds to me like a clutch issue

So the truck moves with it in gear while cranking it over tells me that the clutch hydraulics are gone, have you checked the fluid in the clutch master cylinder? If it is low refil and recheck clutch operation, if it is full then your going to have to replace the clutch master and slave cylinder to do it right, and as the tranny is going to be pulled to do this you should also replace the clutch with a good quality clutch kit. This not a job for a novice, so if you don't have the tools and equipment don't attempt this.
