Could be fuel pump,check fuel pressure to confirm this,and if truck is skipping,may need to change plug,s and wire,s,if not skipping,check that fuel pump.

You are getting misfire probably cause of low fuel pressure.

In mine the CAT was bad. Would not run at all above 1000 rpm. MAJOR BOGG. To check it is easy, pull out the front o2 sensor B1 so the hole is open to relieve pressure. Mine fired up no problem and no bogging at all.
