There are many things that can cause it to go to reduced power. Can you get a code reader and check the codes?

Cannot move the truck, no diag. reader in house.

There is something significant wrong for it to be shutting down, the computer is protecting the engine from damage. A lot of people have scanners these days, do you know anyone that might have one? We really need to see what the codes say.
