Problem solved! Not sure why this solved it but replaced the upstream O2 again, this time with a Denso brand sensor (last time was a bosch) And the stalling has stopped and the truck is running much better for nearly a week now.

Good to hear. When it comes to sensors, I only use Mopar or Napa Echlin to prevent a problem like this.

I checked out a lot of forums a few months back when I was have O2 sensor problems. EVERYONE complained that the Bosch sensors never worked, especially on Dodges.

Yea that's what I noticed when I started to research my problems is that bosch is garbage. Many of them said to go with Denso. Apparently Denso is actually the manufacturer of the oem dodge mopar o2 sensors. I'm just shocked at how much the bad bosch sensor was messing with the ecu. Originally it was just an engine light for a bad o2 and after putting the bosch in is when all the mechanical symptoms started. Just happy it was a cheaper easy fix and not a $300 ecu.

Scratch that, O2 sensor was an unrelated issue to the stalling and not restarting but was good for about 2 weeks afte fixing the O2 issue... this truck is going to be pushed off a cliff soon. I scanned it and again no codes EXCEPT this time I thought I'd look at enhanced DTCs on my scanner and behold a code P0320 which is described as:

P0320 - Chrysler
Type - Powertrain - Ignition System or Misfire - ISO/SAE Controlled
Description - No Crank Reference Signal to PCM Conditions
Cause - Engine cranking, then test started and the PCM did not detect an CKP sensor signals although CMP sensor signals were present (conditions met for over 2 seconds.)

What's frustrating is the crank sensor was replaced by a mechanic about a month and a half ago.
