Default 97 ram 5.9 random no start

I have a 97 1500 4x4 5.9l the last couple days ive been getting a random no start. It only happens after its warmed up, sometimes I have to wait 10 minutes then it will start sometimes 45 minutes but it always starts back up and runs fine.
it never does it when im at or near home or with someone to diagnose it. it cranks fine just wont start. my first thought was coil heating up, replaced that didn't help. I figured fuel pump, changed that didn't help.

Last winter I did a complete rebuild new everything

I don't want to throw a bunch of time or money chasing down what it is.

Im not getting any codes, about 2 months ago I got a code, don't remember what one. I think it was for the cam position sensor, pick up coil something like that. I cleared the code and it never came back.
Could that cause a random no start? it is less then a year old.

I put a new relay in it today thinking maybe that was going bad, that didn't help either.

Have any suggestions?
