Truck stalls when put into gear

Asked by Jun 08, 2017 at 01:11 AM about the Dodge D-Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Everytime I put my truck into gear the
whole truck jerks and kills the engine. I
lifted the rear end off the ground and put it
into gear and it didnt stall. I can't figure it
out could it be a tranny problem? Or
possibly a rear end problem im just not
sure. Any help is appreciated.   1989

trans btw.
