04 6.0 died and won't turn over

Ok, we just got this 2004 F-350 dually about 5,000 miles ago, it has around 65,000 miles on it and is not chipped.

My uncle was driving it home with a 12,000 lbs. load on back, (around 250miles) got off at our exit and filled up with diesel. He started heading home, got about 1 mile from the truck stop he just filled up at and the engine just died. tried starting it up and it won't even crank over. I am going up tomorrow morning to see if I can figure out what is wrong with it,
any suggestions?
The truck stop is a reputable one and we fill up there all the time. I did a lof around 2,000 miles ago or less and changed both fuel filters at that time.....

sounds like a leak internally in the high pressure system....common failures are the D rings for the injectors and the quick connect at the HPOP...

Thanks for the welcome.
I assume the hpop is the high pressure oil pump... Which from my understanding is not an easy job.... How can I test for this if it is the hpop? and if it is the hpop it would cause the starter to not even turn over?

scuffy,
That is what I have been thinking... That possibly the ground somewhere was bad or that the alternator on it went out... I wasn't driving it so I didn't get to experience the problem... hopefully I'll know something more here in an hour or 2.

i cant say if a ground problem could cause alternator to go bad , but on that year model, the ground wire on right bottom corner of engine had a problem with coming loose , there was a recall on that , i did find several loose when doing the recalls, just check it , its a 15mm bolt with a stud sticking out of it

if its running that bad , im thinking fuel pressure or if for some reason it does have a high pressure oil system leak ,when engine is cold it usually will restart, and if it did lose oil pressure would run bad until all air was pushed out of system, is there a chance they can pull codes where the truck is at i would start there , if it lost oil pressure it will more than likely have code p2290 or p2291 in system ,if it lost fuel pressure you may not have any codes , usually no codes to me means fuel pressure problem ,it will also run rough if it lost fuel pressure , either way the air will get in the system and cause it to run rough
