NEED HELP FUEL FILTER LIGHT COMES ON AND STARTS SPUDDERING AND DIES

hey guys i got a 1995 crew cab f350 4x4 5speed 215k it was a landscaping truck and they let it sit for 2 years before i got it. i have been driving it for about 3 weeks now. i bought it put new brake lines, 2 fuel filter,CPS,injection pressure regulator,fuel pump. now for the issues if i start to get on it to merge into traffic the fuel filter light will come on and if i cruise at like 55 to 60mph after about 3miles the truck will start spuddering and end up dieing and it acts like it is out of fuel but ill get out and check the fuel bowl and its got plenty of fuel. and sometimes it just dies randomly and it doesnt want to start i have to let it sit for about 10-15min then it will start. I NEED HELP GUYS it suck because i cant even take my son to daycare because im affraid of being stranded.

Check the fuel pressure at idle and you may need to check it at WOT to make sure its not dropping off. Have you checked the fuel filter again? Cheers!

You changed the fuel filter? Thats typically what a fuel filter light is for

Did you drain the bowl?

Blow the fuel lines out, sounds like they're a bit clogged
