Check if you can if it doesn't have some kind of alarm system that locks out when battery disconnected.(owners manual, or where you bought the vehicle), then I'd check all the fuses, starting with any under the hood to see if maybe one of those blew when hooking up new battery.

1998 Dodge Ram 1500 won't start


still sounds like the timing belt/chain to me,especially since it just shut off goin down the road, had a 93 that did the same thing,dodge has a kind of safety switch that if the timing belt breaks the engine will shut down to keep you from tearing anything else up.

2000 Dodge Ram 1500 318 wont start


this problem is not unusual ,without seeing the car as i have no product knowledge with american built cars as such,but if it has one coil and not a coil pack then its the ignition module ,these often go just as you describe .Stop car to pop in shop and then no go,this is not the dealers fault they just pack up ,ask dealer nicely and no doubt they will send someone around to put a new one in for you .
