well my truck would do that till I changed my fuel pump and strainer. in my experience its better to replace the fuel pump first before anything. sometimes things find their way into the tank (only god knows how) and thankfully the fuel pump gathers everything conveniently right at your strainer. inside your sending unit. however that burns out your pump. so if it has an open bed all you have to do is lift your bed and pull your sending unit out and replace the fuel pump and strainer. its easier than dropping the tank however not as safe. you have to secure your bed yourself. I had no problem using a jack with a log and just jack up the bed. use blocks for the jack. or just pay a mechanic. it might not be the solution but more times then not this fixes it.
