Unhappy newbie needs help !

hey. i bought a new truck a couple weeks ago.
its a 1982 dodge ram club cab. painted purple and black! new re-manufactured engine. interior redone its pretty nice. but anyways.
i was just kinda screwing around one day on a dirty road and i ended up loosing control. like not in a bad way but i kinda just went into the ditch lol. and there was water in the ditch -_- . anyways i got a guy in a bronco to pull me out. he yanked me out pretty hard but i mean atleast he was nice enough to pull me out . lol anyways after that my truck started perfect. drove fine. everything worked perfect
i got a car wash drove back to my house. everrything seemed fine. anyways later that night me and my freinds decided to go to mcdonalds! so i get in the truck start it. it starts then i put it in reverse and back up and it just dies . and has not started every since. its only been a day but im really starting to worry about the truck

Hello and welcome to the forum, great to have you here. Not sure where to look , is it possible that you got some water or dirt into the carb? Not sure that would do it thought. Someone will likely be by soon that can help.
When you get a chance post a picture or two of your truck.
