1999 dodge ram 1500 5.9l 360

I am having a problem getting the truck started. when i try to start it, it just keeps turning over and it will act like its gonna start but it just bucks really hard and feels like the engine shakes. Is anyone also ever had this happen? i changes sparkplugs, wires, and got a new battery.

I just had the same problem, have someone hit the gas tank from underneat with a hammer( about it the middle and gently) while you turn the key, if it starts then you have a bad fuel pump cost about 200 for the part.
