2000 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 5.9 Sport Offroad

Ok, the list....
Truck will not go into Park
Start out in first, hit about 2,000rpms, the trans. searches between 1st and 2nd going up down up down up down.....so if you hit the gas harder the engine speed rises but truck doesn't accelerate...she'll bounce off the rev limiter, in gear, and not go up a gear, and truck wont accelerate...when its bouncing off the rev limiter.....almost like your in neutral.... finally when it, goes into third (i think) and it goes in kinda hard but the power from the trans isn't always there...torque converter?? my first guess but i dont think thats it...

dude...i need some help

Your kickdown band strut has probably fallen out jamming the linkage and causing you to have no 2nd gear... This will require removal of the valve body to fix.
To be certian, try and adjust the kickdown band.

The kickdown band strut can fall out if the band isn't adjusted as it wears. It seems that the factory spec to back off 2-7/8 tuns is on th loose side and most set it in the 1-1/2 to 2 turns backed off from 72 in-lbs. (6ft-lbs)
The only picture I know of to show how it should look when assembled correctly is at the 1st page, post 12 of:
