Sounds like a fueling issue honestly. You truck is dieing from lack of fuel. Maybe your pump is going or your filter is horrible? OR you fuel shut off button on the passenger side is partially connected cause sparatic issues.

I have had issues with my sensor getting kicked loose (the connectors). One time my truck just died and i had no idea what it was.. luckily i had my manual and checked that switch and it needed to be reset and replugged in.

I dont know if thats it. That odd your dieing like that if fuel system is all new.

I had a similar issue at idle, when I came to a light/stop, and even when swithing from drive to reverse and back cuz it passed through neural it would shake and turn off. It ended up being a hole on my PVC elbow.

use the fuel reset switch under the glove box by where your passenger would rest their feet. It's a white cylinder shaped object with a rubber button on top. Press and hold it when ur key is half way on (so just the radio is on) I have an 05 as well and that seems to let it crank over and start. I have NO CLUe why it does it....

Had same problem couldn't find it until I tried to squeeze that elbow and it never popped back out.... Ended up using 5/8 heater hose and a cheap plastic elbow to get home.... think that was about 40k miles ago, guess i should go get a new piece no that I'm thinking about it....
