Are you testing it just by hot wiring or,are are you hooking it to the wire,s at the pump connector?

Most likely a bad pump motor, it will run with no load but when a load is applied it can't pull it. I would recommend getting the entire fuel pump module assembly while your already there.

by hooking it up to the plug for it. the guy i got the truck from said he trouble from the computer before. ive got another one here, wasnt sure what i have to do.
