trying to fix it. I rebuilt crab also replaced all spark pugs and wires and coil pus  
Brian box. Also fuel pump and gas lines and new gas tank and gas filter. After

From what I understand, when the truck kills while driving, without touching the key, you can depress the gas pedal,and it will start running again. Appears to be a fuel issue, could you have made an error in your carb rebuild.
