Try this. With the truck in it's limping configuration (check engine light on, engine loping erratically while running) carefully wiggle the under valve cover harness connection right at the valve cover where the wires enter the valve cover on the side of the engine that's missing (you'll hear it, it's very obvious. The live side clatters, the dead side just makes mechanical noise with no combustion/injector noise). wiggle the harness right where it goes into the valve cover. Wait a split sec and presto, the thing should come back to life. If that's the problem, don't bother just getting the harness without the gasket as the problem is probably the double female in the gasket itself.
while you're in there, examine the large cannon plug (42 pin?) on the drivers side valve cover, the one that rests right on the valve cover. If your engine has a slight miss, chances are one of the injector wires is grounding out on the bottom of that harness to your metal valve cover.
May the force be with you.
