Truck has 98000 miles and the fuel pump was replaced because it would not start one day. I hit the tank with a rubber hammer and the pump kicked in, I replaced the pump the next day.

I double checked the fuel pressure tonight and it is 50psi. There is no way it's the fuel pump, they either work or they don't and this one has good pressure.

Also, my truck has had this problem for 3 years! I drive the truck so little I have never really worried about it but now I want to get it fixed.

A little history on the truck:
I bought it in 2001 with 50000 miles. It has 36" BFG mud terrains, ARB air lockers front and rear, throttle body spacer and 3" lift. 5 years ago I broke off a rocker arm stud and then had the heads rebuilt. 4 years ago I lost oil pressure while driving. Shop took the pan off and found sludge in the pan. They cleaned the motor and it was good to go. 3 years ago while pulling the boat off the lake the truck acted up for the first time and it has done it ever since.
