I'm not quite sure from the description you have of your truck at the bottom of your post, but I want to make sure you have a 7.3L turbo diesel. If it is, the most common problem with the 7.3L turbo diesel engines stalling is due to a bad cam position sensor. I'm not sure of all the other problems you mentioned, but a CPS is fairly cheap (About $25.00) and if you haven't changed it, I recomend you do. If anything, you will eliminate this problem for now as well as the future and know if you have other issues. I had to change mine about 3 years ago because of stalling. There was never any rhyme or reason when it would stall. It drove me nuts for a few days until a hot shot driver with a truck like mine told me what it probably was. If I remember right, the CPS is located in the block behind the harmonic balancer and has a wire going to it with a single bolt holding it in place and only takes about 15 minutes to change.
