Truck shutting off while driving.

I'v read a bunch of posts about this but none have a solution. I replaced the CPS and a ground wire that was bad. I was on the highway today and hit a big chuck hole and it caused my truck to shut off a a split second then restarted it self. Be for i replaced the CPS it would just completely shut off. What else can i check?

It did again after that but while just driving normal. Its at least restarting it self. Be for i replaced the CPS i had to stop put it in park and restart the truck.

Im still leaning towards a connection somewhere. Although its tough to say. If you can try hooking it up to a scanner and see what codes are stored in it

You couldn't just start it in neutral while coasting?

Anyway, what it's doing now, when it restarts on its own, does the WTS light come on?

I was in traffic when it would happen and it does it with out warning so i just pulled over really quick. Now it just shuts off for a split second then catches it self and comes back on. It's weird, as if it completely loses electrical power for a split second. No wait to start light. It does it so fast that the starter doesn't have to be cranked for it to start, it juat comes back on and i continue on my way.
