Engine cut on a bump

I picked up this 2001 F250 4x4 with a 4'' lift, 295/70/r18 tires and a DP Tuner that was in remarkable shape this past Saturday. I went on a small road trip yesterday and it was running great, but after almost 4 hours of driving and quite a few bumpy roads, I came into town and drove over some rough railroad tracks and the engine entirely cut. Seems to me like something shorted out.

I also noticed that the DP Tuner was in a position 1 lower than when it was running just before it cut out.

Does this sound like an electrical issue that the DP Tuner could possibly be causing?

The setting it bumped down to was the one that makes it idle super low and doesn't allow it to drive. Switching to it while driving makes it feel as though the gas pedal disengages and the rpms stay normal.
