Check your oil level. Running to low on oil will cause your injectors to stop working making it feel like it was running outta fuel. Had the exact same thing happen to me when I had bad injector o-rings, found out almost to late that my wife had let the oil level get to low and the truck died from it. Any way Just my 0.02c , maybe some one has a better idea?

I would not rule out the fuel pump either.
