explain??

on a stock truck, fuel is drawn directly from the tank to the filter housing by a 'lift' pump mounted on the block. From there, it is pushed to the VP-44 at the front of the engine and then pressurized into the injection lines.

he is talking about a switch that cuts off power to the lp in the case of an accident - if there is one. I know that Ford has one on every vehicle - I bet Dodge does too.

Not that I know of... I never seen anything about a fuel cutout on any Dodge Vehicle yet... I'll double check the FSM and yet you know...:w:

I would check for fuel pressure and pump function...

Lift Pump Diagnostics

Then re-prime the system...

Change out the filters and bleed the system.
Did it try starting (assuming it is turning over) or is it totally dead?
If you have lift pump pressure and it won't start, clear the ECM in case it has a default feature (if it does have one) and see if it will start.
Depending on to what degree it tipped, the fuel tank pickup maybe has gotten blocked (you never know what will move around on the bottom of a tank with this sort of thing.)
Did you get it on its side or just bicycle it?
A wrench with a code reader would be your friend.

If the air bags went off, any airbag deployment would have shut down the pump
