Need some help

I have a 2000 f250, I was cruising down the highway at 75mph, EGTs running 900 like normal, then out of nowhere they spiked to about 1050-1100 and my truck started to bog down. I killed it and turned the key on and off a few times and started it and it ran normal, except my EGTs are climbing way faster than normal. Once I reach 70 or my EGTs at 900 it begins to bog down as if it were fuel starved. I'm not chiefing white smoke so I don't think it's my lift pump, but I feel like it's a fuel pressure issue. This happened yesterday and even after letting it sit the EGTs are still climbing faster than it normally does. Any ideas?

First easy thing is to check and see if you've developed any boost leaks. Also, check your up-pipes and see if you have any soot on the firewall. If nothing has changed there, it would be prudent to get a fuel pressure gauge on it.
