Did you hit a bump or something hard? Check the fuel pump shut-off.. I hit a big dip one time and it tripped the pump cut off...

One thing that WILL cause this problem ... Check the connector on the MAF sensor....
Did the CEL come on ?? IF so.... you will need to check what code was given !!!

OR 4x4

If the fuel pump inertia switch was tripped, it wouldn't start at all.

I'd get you catalytics checked also. Couple weeks before mine got totaled, i would hit the gas and the truck would struggle horribly to get moving and stall out at times. This may not be the problem at all but a bad catalytic converter will make your truck stall out and rob it of almost all it's power.
