is the check engine light on ? if you look under the truck can you see the shift cable physically shifting the transmission from park to reverse to neutral and then drive ?

ok so when its inthe D range it will not move and the cable is shifting it into the D range correct ?sorry for the 20 questions but i want to be sure to give you the correct answer

since you have reverse it shows the pump is good and there is enough fluid inside the transmission.since the check engine light is NOT on it shows the computer is not picking up on any wiring this point since the light is NOT on there is more than likey an internal failure that is causing this problem.but a shop is going to have to plug in a scan tool and see if they can shift 1st gear when its in drive range.if they can not then they will inspect the shift solenoid and wiring if that is ok then something failed inside the transmission

ok that pan needs to come off the transmission and you need to see if its filled with metal or aluminum at the bottom of it.if you see that that transmission must be rebuilt or replaced
