Default no spark sometimes

My 94 dodge ram 5.9 gas with 176k miles just dies when driving or idling. There is no spark when this happens, and will start anywhere from a few seconds to hours later. When I bought (a few months ago) it it had new cap, wires, plugs, and coil. Since I added new magnetic pickup, rotor, egr valve, batt. wires, and starter. Anyone have any ideas?

Could be so many things. Don't overlook other things like the ignition. Though this would likely kill power to everything(lights, radio, etc.).

I'd start with battery connections, grounds, etc. Look for frayed wires...loose connections...

These are notorious for having bad plugs on the electrical connection in the bottom of the coil. Next time it does it wiggle the plug on the coil and try it again.
