Does it only happen when warmed up? Could be the Torque convertor is locking up at idle/low speeds. It is controlled by a solenoid that can be replaced, if in fact is your issue. You would know this is your problem, if you can start the truck and have it in park or neutral. Put it in drive or reverse and the truck stalls.

The recommendation I gave you is just something I would try first before saying it is something else. Can not guarantee %100 that is your problem. It could also be what Tom mentioned also. It is a minor repair. Hopefully it works for you.
