Default 2006 RAM HEMI Shutting off and Jumps out of gear

Have an issue with truck either losing traction , jumping out of gear or engine shuts off for a couple seconds not sure which one.

Last night on interstate traveled across overpass which causes truck to bounce. On the other side of bridge lost power and then had a hard thump like the truck jumped out of gear and then went back in. It has done this many times in the past , seems like it has been raining each time. After crossing the bridge the engine then shut off. I was able to restart. I has shut off before on a side street but never on the interstate.
thanks for any info...

It could be an loose electrical connection somewhere. This would explain why it happens in wet and bouncy situations.

I would start with checking the wring to the O2 sensors. Often undoing the connector and reconnecting will restore electrical connection. I would then move my attention to the wiring connectors at the PCM, then the same on the bottom of the TIPM.

Being a 2006, you are at that time where these issues can show up. The connectors and wiring is very good quality, but given enough time and moisture anything will end up with surface corrosion which is often a factor in proper operation given the number of wiring connections in a vehicle.
