Your ignition switch is getting ready to burn out, the contact inside slowly burns off. I had one go at around 90k miles and it's starting to do it again at 170k.

98 z71 starts and runs very rough then slams into gear and dies what could cause this?

I have to guess at a few things but.. I am guessing because the engine has serious problem with how it is running the engine computer has increased the idle speed very high to try and keep it running. If this is the case putting it into gear will bang very hard and drop the engine speed to below what the engine control computer can keep it running. So it quits. Get the engine fixed.
