I have already changed spark plugs and wires and two coil packs also changed two fuel

Hook up a gauge and actually measure the fuel pressure. Are there any codes in the computer or is the check engine light on? I have seen MAF sensors cause this concern but I'm still leaning toward the fuel pump. Don't spend money on either until you check it out. It could get expensive real fast and you still may not fix your truck. The other thing that comes to mind is a plugged catalytic converter. You can unbolt the exhaust and run the engine to see how it preforms.
