Truck died

So I was driving home from my dads, with gooseneck and tractor in tow, cruise on 70, chip on 80 tow tune. I had just topped a little climb and was heading down hill when all of a sudden the dash lit up like a Christmas tree, and bam the engine quit.... I coasted to a safe pull out, set the chip to stock, cranked, nothing, cycled the key and it fired up.. I am thinking CPS, any other thoughts... If its the cps is ford the best place to get one???

00 F350 cc 4x4 auto
DIY filter
Factory exhaust
Straight piped
EGT, boost, trans temp guages
20x,xxx miles, stock transmission

thats up for debate as of late...IH seems to be best, and I always carry a spare and tools to change it. Kinda sounds thats you issue or fuel related

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...
