Default truck keeps dying, HELP!

The other day I took off my aftermarket headlights (spyder auto) halo's. and put back on my stock ones because they werent bright at all, couldnt see anything. Since then my truck has ben having a rough idle, and since yesterday my truck has randomly ben turning off and im having to restart it, mostly when im in reverve. When i put it in park it idles very low and is barely making any noise at all, i have straight pipes and it normally idles loud. Any help would be great!

Is the MIL on? Dirty throttle body? Does it run normally when you come off idle?

Malfunction Indicator Lamp (aka CEL). Sounds to me like you have a dirty throttle body and IAC motor. If you want to clean it up yourself and same some cash, check out this link http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=46454
