Angry drive every other day?

Well I am starting to have regular problems with my ram. I can drive it for 3 or 4 days and then it wont start. It will sit for 2 or 3 days and then fire right up. It runs great for day 1 and slowly runs rougher and rougher in gear.... idles fine in park. This has been going on for about a month and I am at my wits end. I have changed plugs, wires, idle air control valve, tested battery and alternator...it's not a battery issue. Is it possible for it to vapor lock itself as it runs? and then choke itself out? I am completely stumped.....

Have you tried checking the fuel pressure? Should be close to 43 PSI.
