Well there could be mulitple reasons why it won't start, has the motor been damaged in the roll over? What about the tranny? Is it stuck in gear? Are there any DTC? Is there any power at all going to the truck?.......little more info our way so we can be more help

I have no idea where it's located on those (behind the passenger side kick panel?) but the first thing you should check is the inertia shut off switch for the fuel pump.

Good thinking. I think it is in the dash, located on the passenger side. You have to open the door, look where the door covers the dash when it is closed. There is a little piece of plastic. If you remove it, there is a little switch in there. Sorry, not the best directions.

hyrolock after roller is pretty common especially with a diesel's small combustion chamber, but ive usually got em unstuck after several hours like 24 sitting right side up and occasional attempt to crank, if this doesnt work youll have to pull the glowplugs which isnt impossible but not real convenient either

The inertia switch is in the dash when you open the passenger door. You will have to take off a 1x1 little panel on the side of the dash with a fuel pump on it.

if it still does not start after setting the inertia switch. you will have to clear all the codes in the system. sometimes it will lock the starter out untill the fuel pump circuit codes are removed.
