Default Random Cutting out issue

06 1500 Megacab, 135k, one owner truck just purchased....month into owning it I would notice after hitting a stretch of semi rough road and climbing a slight grade, it would cut out once, then it started cutting out a couple times and now sometimes it will cut our several times and run good for a while.....but it always seems like it does it right after clearing a rough patch of road and always while on the throttle.

Also, the ETC light flashed a few times and sent me into limp mode.

Firestone originally diagnosed the issue as a throttle body and bad battery, but didn't fix the issue although the ETC issue hasn't resurfaced, but the cutting out is still happening. Its been back at Firestone and Ive spoken with the tech who seems to be pretty knowledgeable about wiring and ground issues....nothing can be found as to why it doing it. They refunded my money.

Any suggestions?
Truck will not misfire sitting in my driveway idling, idles smoothly and doesn't have any other issues except for the cutting out.

It feel like a voltage drop from the ignition but its not a single cylinder because of how hard it drops out or maybe a momentary fuel pressure drop but its very quick.

Any suggestions?

When you say "cut out" do you mean the engine shuts off or is it just the electronics (radio, cluster, etc) that go out?
