My 2001 had the same symptoms. I replaced the ICP Sensor and the truck would not die but it would still idle rough at times. I then noticed a loose connection on the ICP while the truck was idling. I replaced the three pin connector and truck runs like NEW.

Try doing the following to narrow the problem. Disconnect the ICP located on the driver side Cylinder head far foward behind fuel filter canister. Dry the truck for about 1 week to learn if the problem is still persistant. This will trigger the check engine light so dont get scared.
