Running Rough, No power

I tried looking in other threads for this problem but couldn't find anything that helped. I started my truck up this morning and it ran fine for about a minute. As I was driving, it suddenly lost power and started shaking like it was missing. It feels and sounds about the same as it does when the fuel gets low, just more extreme. The engine light is also on. The cps was replaced about a year ago so I know that's not the problem. Any ideas??

Check valve cover harness's. Might have come loose and shut off a cylinder bank! Just play with the harnesses while the trucks running to see if it smoothes out!

I'll check that out. Is it possible it could be an injector or fuel pump?

Well if it was the harness the injectors in that head would stop firing anyway!

It could be but I've already gone through half a tank from the last fill up. Like I said, it feels like it's running out of fuel so that could be a possibility. I'm going to check the harness, replace the filter, change my oil, mess with my TS chip to see if its loose, and get scanned. I'm hoping it's something along those lines. If it's an injector or fuel pump, I'm not going to be a happy Powerstroker.
