Dead 97' all of the sudden.

Some of you may have seen my thread in the urgent 911 forum about a week ago, well, I'm still down. The truck had been running for a half hour or so around the plant, was idling along the lot on smooth pavement moving some office furniture...and it just died. Not slowly, no hiccups, no clunks. Instantly. Like a light switch. Snap on scanner pointed to anything on IDM circuit, grounds, CPS, bad far, I have changed the crank sensor, changed fuel pump, checked all mega fuses, tested plug at IDM for bad connections in the harness. And changed the IDM, needed one quick and for me autoelectronics was the quickest, had it next day'd and the truck wanted to fire (this was before the fuel pump change), more so than with my old idm but still wouldn't run on all 8, or even close. Checked my fuel pressure at the bowl and was only getting between 25-30, changed the pump and still no dice.....I'm am EXTREMELY frustrated. Any advice?
