Yes, I would start with the ICP sensor and maybe a new pigtail to go with it. Do you have a way to pull codes or get ICP and IPR data? See the t-shooting guide in my sig for more info. The next time it does this pull the plug on the ICP sensor and see if it starts.

unplug the icp if the contacts have oil on them then the icp is shot. they are expensive but can be changed out in about an hour including the pigtail. easiest way to do it is form under the truck. There is a heat shield between the block and y pipe. its removed with 2 10mm bolts and i believe an 8mm bolt. take a 1 1/16 wrench and cut the box end down to 6 inches long can be bought at oreilly auto parts for less than 20 bucks if i remember right. unplug the icp put the wrench on the sensor push up may have to tap the wrench with a long prybar and hammer. Half to 3/4 turn should loosen it enough to remove by hand. remove the old one then quickly install the new one the less oil lost the easier it is to restart the truck.The icp does not need to be installed very tight about a half turn more than hand tight works great. From above disconnect the IRP valve wiring and lift the harness holder off of the stud next to it, you can now pull the harness out far enough to do the needed surgery to it.
