Does it also die sometimes when you put it in park? Take your throttle body off and clean it, it will make a huge difference. There should be a very small gap around the inside of the throttle body around the butterfly plate when closed. If its never been cleaned then it will be really black inside and when held up to the light you will not see the gap as its caked with carbon. With that gap filled with carbon, the truck will not idle correctly as its starved for air.
