Usually this is due to a bad distributor cap or plug wires. Try this, on a warm afternoon when the truck will start, get a spray bottle with water in it and mist it over the distributor area and then the plug wires. If it won't start or runs rough, that's your problem.

A tune up does not include a cap, rotor or wires any more like the old days, I am giving you an easy, free way to find your problem.
