Im not a tech, but mine died randomly on the highway and turned out to be a High Pressure Oil Switch. The injectors need high pressure oil to fire, and if it isnt getting it, your truck wont run.

Its either your cam sensor going bad or your high pressure oil pump. I had my high pressure oil pump die on me, in the drive thru at stake in shake, it was a costly repair. Try the cam sensor first its cheaper.

cam sensor on 6.0 dont go out , if this truck has no codes it sounds like two things to me , fuel pressure or maybe an icp sensor , need to get a scanner on it and see what it doesnt have and run a fuel pressure test
