You may want to try a search of old threads on here. I do remember someone having this same issue but don't remember what the cause was.
Other than that, you may want to look at the throttle body with the engine off, pull the butterfly blades back and look into the bores. If they are black and looks like they are covered in soot, it means you need to pull the throttle body off the intake manifold and clean the TB with TB cleaner. While you have the TB off, make sure to take off the throttle position sensor and then take off the idle air control valve. The IAC is what controls your idle and if it is gummed up from carbon deposits, then it will cause stalling in reverse or going from a stop. I had the same stalling problems on my old 94 Dak 5.2 and it was the IAC being badly gummed up to the point that it wasn't salvageable.
