That's exactly what my line of thought was as well. Low oil, running,
backed down on an incline with oil away from the pickup in the pan
more than likely...left the vehicle so didn't hear it clammering for oil
and 'walah' (sp)...toasted lifters and possibly more that can only be
seen by a complete teardown.

Snow man has the right answer he just left out some of the points that should be
intuitively obvious to the most casual of observers. Ya see, when you back your
truck into the water some water does get into the exhaust system. Some of this
water turns to steam and rises thus a small amount gets into the engine. This
causes chemical reactions to occur within the engine and fullerines sp?
(commonly know as Buckey Balls) are formed. When these balls form within your
Ram it's testosterone levels increase causing it to buck uncontrolably with a
pumping action. This in turn causes the 710 pump to go into cardiac arrest
depriving the lifters of 710! You could have prevented this by giving your Ram
a transfution of 710. This is a simple proceedure. All auto stores have quarts
of 710 but they can be hard to spot. The trick is to stand on your head while
looking! After purchasing a few quarts of 710 remove the cap marked 710 and
poor some in until the dipstick reads full.
