Default dies while driving

My 1996 Dodge Ram started to stall while driving, no warning, engine just dies, usually on flat surfaces, and while cruising along at 45-55 MPH. It starts right back up usually. When it dies I usally coast off to the side and stop when I start her right back up. And when I hooked up an OBD II reader there are no error codes.

So far I only replaced the IAC and cleaned the throttle body, I checked the MAP Sensor, and the TPS sensor, they seem to be working like they are designed to do. I also checked the ASD and Fuel Pump Relay and they are at the specified meter readings. Listened to the fuel pump and that seemed to charge in tthe 3-5 second specifications.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I'm thinking more along the lines of a CKP sensor losing signal.

my truck did the same thing as yours is doing, the last thing i tried was the crank sensor with no error codes thrown and that was the problem

No, not always. The 4.0 liter Jeep engines are notorious for going bad (shorting internally), shutting down the PCM and never throwing the first code.
